I saw Close Encounters of the Third Kind and was sold -- I wanted to make films for the rest of my life. Super-8 epics, film school, under-the-line industry jobs and several produced TV credits later -- not to mention numerous almost-but-not-quite-produced feature screenplays -- I'm still on that quest. I'm also a husband and father of two brilliant, beautiful girls who inherited these qualities from their mother.
The magic that inspired me so long ago sitting in that theater watching a spaceship ascend to the heavens continues to fuel my work today. I look forward to seeing where Amazon Studios leads me on that path.
