My Philosophy

The stories we tell ourselves define our realities. Is your life is full of trouble and strife? Fill your mind with better stories. Better stories lead to better ideas, better ideas lead to more helpful actions, more helpful actions lead to a more connected and prosperous life.

I am a storyteller. I write for passion, for money, and for fun.

I work very hard, I have an open mind, and I want to work with people who want to make the world a better place- whatever that means to you. I am responsible, and function well under pressure and with deadlines. Some people want to sky dive, or go to festivals, or sporting events; I write for many hours at a time for days on end. This is thrilling to me.

Some Stories About Me

Over the years, I have worked as a writer, director, producer, editor, actor, and voiceover actor. Whatever it takes to tell the story, I will dive in head first.

I have a particular passion for circus. As a teenage actor in Minneapolis, I was blessed to work with the Theatre De La Jeune Lune, who approached everything they worked on from the standpoint of “how can we make this circus?” Living in the New York City at the turn of the century, I created (with a wonderful troupe of crazies) a circus called Delicious Vaudeville. We ran it for two years in different locations around the city. You never knew quite what the show was going to be every night. It was exciting.

Most of my professional life has been spent working as a voice actor, mostly commercials, while I used the freedom it gave me to write dozens of scripts, make lots of short films, write/direct/produce/edit/act in a feature film, The Curse of El Segundo, make the above mentioned circus, and have a small role in the legendary poker film Rounders.

Yup, that’s my forehead there next to Matt Damon. Note the great Kohl Sudduth and Chris Messina were there too. And I’m pretty sure that’s Ed Norton’s back.

I hold a black belt in Aikido. I spent years as a dancer, made money as a mime, clown, and gogo dancer. I love to sing, cook, and I can walk for miles and miles.

I’m a dedicated dad. I love my kids. My girlfriend is a yoga teacher and she’s an amazing human. I have many amazing people in my communities. Life is miraculous.
