I was born in the years between Jimi Hendrix’s death and Richard Nixon’s resignation. I am a huge fan of the former. I grew up near San Francisco.

I graduated from UCLA last century with a bachelor’s degree in English Literature, emphasis in Creative Writing. For four years I lived in Chicago while studying film and video at Columbia College. I completed my coursework in 1997, but did not complete my thesis until 2017, when I earned my MFA in Cinema Art and Science: Cinema Directing.

I have created or co-created a few things, a list of which you can see on my Past Work page.

I have been with Kirsten for 28 years, married for almost 18. We do not have children, but as of June 2014 live with Missekat, a very sweet feline despite occasional bouts of kitty psychoses (usually at dawn).

I am almost always busy working on something. Check the Current Projects page to see what that would be.
