Writer Statement

Immersing a reader into a believable world and taking them on an emotionally charged journey is what I live for. I became obsessed with books at a young age, my Father always had his nose in a book - and what young boy doesn't strive to imitate his Father? So as soon as I was granted admission to the vast treasure trove of his library, I too was found nose-in-book more often than not. From Arthur C. Clarke, to Robert Jordan, and everything in between I became passionate about these fantastic worlds, and even began to write some of my own as a young teenager. That quickly converted to creating worlds to Roleplay in with the help of D&D, Rifts, Robotech and the like. As an adult I've found my calling as a filmmaker, and relish every moment of it. Writing, Directing, Producing - it's a thrilling industry in which to call career. Thank you, the readers, for making it possible - I hope you enjoy the reading as much as I enjoyed the writing.
