Director & Producer
Benefiting the human race, increasing the sum of knowledge in the world, gratifying my intellectual curiosity and continuing the spiritualization of my senses are MOST important to me. A Gen-X’er who believes good stories beg to be told. We need them. They are tools for existing. And we must pass them from generation to generation.
I’m rebellious and unschooled—breaking the rules when I can but always honoring the form. A fool thinks unconscious habits are instinct. Long tough days are required. The road is never smooth. There’s no room for shortcuts, just being thoroughly meticulous. I do everything despite fear, ridicule and rejection because the world needs my courage. In the wild struggle for existence we want to have something that endures… so here I am ready for the call.
