artist bio

I am a filmmaker working with an extensive background in various media formats and technologies, from the IMAX film 'Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon' with Tom Hanks to co-founding a content aggregation company for the mobile phone. My own work has been seen on The Weather Channel, NBC, NBC News, PBS, MTV, FOX, BBC, Showtime and at The Library of Congress. My documentary films (short list), The Fabulous Ice Age (documentary feature), Changing Keys: Billy McLaughlin & the Mysteries of Dystonia (documentary feature), Yoopera! (documentary feature) gained national attention as they toured the festival circuit and/or aired nationally on PBS. I was a feature film development executive for DreamWorks-SKG where I created and headed the research department while working on a long list of Academy Award nominated and winning films including: Saving Private Ryan, Amistad, Minority Report, AI, Gladiator, and The Prince of Egypt.

artist statement

Big Doing Productions

My mistakes are epic.
My sense of adventure rules my head and my heart.
Carry On...

Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain
