|From an early age I have been mesmerized by films and stories. Like most kids I relished fairy tales and adventure books, but what truly fascinated me were the great old movies showing on the high end of the UHF dial.
I would sit for hours watching the photo-plays of bygone eras, as well as the many asian genre pictures which played in heavy rotation. Then, all of a sudden films like Jaws and Star Wars and ET awakened me to a whole new world of modern story telling.
From my first experiences sneaking out of the G and PG rated fare I was supposed to be seeing, and into the meatier and more substantial pictures in the adjoining theaters, I was hooked.
Then in highschool I discovered Kurosawa.
I had always been a writer and a voracious reader, but my introduction to great films sparked a flurry of creative production which has yet to abate to this day.
With a successful award winning film under my belt, I'm now in the fortunate position to be able to bring more of my creative ideas to life.
