At FAU he taught English composition and fiction and poetry. He also worked on Coastlines, the university literary magazine. He lives in Boca Raton, Florida. In just a short period of time, Donovan has made a huge impact to Inspirations renowned education academy. He has directed and produced scenes from two plays – Macbeth and The Outsiders – which were performed by none other than the Inspirations teens. The teen performance was captured on video tape and posted on our YouTube channel for their families to enjoy watching their progress in recovery.

“It is sort of amazing how Donovan has engaged with the teens by not only convincing them to participate in two critically acclaimed plays, but actually enjoy the projects and learn from them,” said Denise Achee, director of Education for Inspirations.
