about

I'm not much interested in embroidery, only results.I’m not very interested in embroidery. Only results. There’s moonshine in my blood and celluloid in my soul. During my tenure as a human being I’ve had brief stints as a Birthday Party Clown, a Pirate, a Disc Jockey, a Projectionist, a Call Center Supervisor, a Below-the-Line Production Monkey, a Fantasy Football Champion and an Amateur Embalmer. I like cartoons more than I can coherently articulate and I try to stay active and support the Triangle & NC Film communities while hammering out a caboodle of original short & feature-length screenplays.

 

“I’m not a bad guy. If only I could stop hoping.”
George Saunders, CivilWarLand in Bad Decline

“Well, here we are, Mr. Pilgrim, trapped in the amber of this moment. There is no why.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

“We’d be fools not to ride this strange torpedo all the way out to the end.”
Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
