I am a creative writer, songwriter, musician and teacher of screenwriting. I work with the John Pallotta Acting School in the Tri-State NYC area and have produced two plays one of which was performed on Broadway and Off-Broadway. I have been active since 1998 as a writer performer and am currently in a progressive rock band named MCSquared. On 9/27/13 I was married to my life partner, Myqui Patten, taking her surname to complete my new identity and becoming Catherine Bonjukian Patten or C. Bonjukian Patten. I can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Huffington Post as well as on an online magazine as a featured columnist writing about political issues of the day: The Daily Journalist.
