As the middle-child growing up on a farm in New Hampshire in the 1970s, life ran at a slow pace, but was never dull. It was an age where kids used their imaginations and movies, and sports allowed for a thrilling, inspiring and engaging environment. As a somewhat gifted athlete I dreamed of becoming a Major League ballplayer, as did all my friends or being a swashbuckling adventurer like my screen heroes Errol Flynn and Luke Skywalker. Life, however, had other plans and illuminated a path that has taken me to incredible destinations around the globe where I have met interesting and fascinating people of all cultures, who have had a tremendous impact on me and how I see world.
By the late 1980s, my wanderlust brought me to Richmond Virginia, where I owned and operated an art gallery. This was my first creative endeavor, which allowed my inner artist to not only be nourished, but to flourish for the very first time. As a burgeoning photographer, I now had an outlet to express who I was outwardly and more important, how I saw myself. By the mid 1990s, I packed up everything I owned and moved to San Francisco and entered art school. To support myself I worked in the field of broadcast television and advertising, but making movies was never far from my thoughts.
Today, I am finishing up my B.F.A., which I began more than two decades ago. With the support of my wife (Angelique) and a newfound drive to prove to myself that it is never too late to chase my dream of being part of the magic of Hollywood, and pursue my life-long dream of making movies. The possibilities seem endless as does what my future holds as I continue my creative journey down this wonderful winding road.
I want to invite you to take a look around at my creative journey in film, photography, television, screenwriting and the web – thanks for visiting.
