I’ve been writing since I was eight years old. It never leaves me, even when I take long breaks. I may die with a pen in my hand, assuming they still have pens eighty years from now.
The et al. (outside of acting; see that section) is mostly directing. I love film as it gives me a moving canvas to paint, with words, music and visual detail to accommodate my particular moon-fed imagination. I’m inspired by so many filmmakers it doesn’t seem to end and I hope it never does. John Cassavettes, Woody Allen, Fellini, Bergman, Elia Kazan, Mel Brooks, Trey Parker/Matt Stone, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Michel Gondry, Billy Wilder and more. Outstanding cinematography also inspires and riles me.
All of these projects are their own rhythm of heart beat. I look forward to bringing them completely into the 3rd dimension.
