Erik Orton began writing and producing theater while a student at BYU, where he graduated in 1998 with a degree in Arts and Media Music, with a minor in playwriting. He was raised primarily in Germany and the suburbs of Washington D.C. In addition to producing and directing a number of plays, Erik has also written a number of works, including the musical Berlin.
His blog, simply called Erik Orton, covers a variety of his musings, all written with a certain style that suggests he could do this writing thing for a living.
Erik and his wife, Emily, live in New York City.
