I was born in Bergen county, New Jersey and raised on a healthy combination of Springsteen albums and 80s pop culture. As a small child I would spend most of my time recapping the adventures of my favorite heroes to anyone who wouldn’t walk away.
Then one day when I was slightly older than I care to admit, I learned that Gotham City was in fact not a ‘real’ city. Harrison Ford was just an actor, not a scruffy-looking nerf herder who had saved the galaxy and radioactive spider bites are pretty damn hard to come by. I was obviously devastated, but then I had an epiphany - They all had to come from somewhere, or more appropriately - someone.
So my list of heroes started to grow - names like Bob Kane, Stan Lee, Steven Spielberg, Joe Dante and Robert Zemeckis. They were the people who made the impossible possible.
Bukowski said, “Find what you love and let it kill you.”
So a couple years ago I flew out to LA to write & make movies. I’m still kickin’.

Look, I know you don’t care about this. You don’t want to sit there and read about how fucking awesome it was for me growing up in Midwest Ohio doing all that totally normal cul-de-sac shit. We all had the exact same experience. Biking to a friends’ house without warning and just hoping they could explore the woods behind their house because “texting” was reading a lot of books in the early 90’s. You know the movies we watched. You remember sitting in the theater thinking “No fucking way” watching Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, a man whose Film Evil Dead inspired you to love movies way before YouTube proved audiences didn’t care about a pictures budget. You remember the games we played. The Halo LAN parties. Picking up comics and books at these places called book stores. Rushing home to watch SNL reruns and agreeing that while Garth Brooks does deserve his own DVD compilation as a host, it is quite strange
You want to hear about the dope shit! Moving to Los Angeles. Working in Reality Tv. Commercials. Music Videos. Writing Screenplays with my best friend and Writing Partner. Shooting shorts. Pilots. Making puppets. Exploring creativity through laughter and ethos.
I don’t always like what I see, but why add to the negativity? Learn from what you don’t like. Lift up what you love. And thanks for listening!
