The Saturday my dad took me to see a matinee screening of Star Wars was the day I knew what I wanted to do the rest of my life. As a boy, I experimented behind the camera making short films with the help of my family, friends and my grandfather’s 8mm camera.
Today, I’ve become a purveyor of magical storytelling—a director, producer, and writer who’s enjoyed an award-winning career both in front and behind the camera. I have over 20 years experience working with The Walt Disney Company and other well-known organizations like ESPN, ABC, Pixar, Lucasfilm, Smucker’s, Jif, Folgers, The Orlando Magic, Atlantis Paradise Island, and NASA. Each have been experiences I’ve cherished and creative collaborations that continue to inspire me.
Of course, a day doesn’t go by I don’t think back to sitting in that old theater watching X-Wings and Tie Fighters fly across the screen. The Force is strong with this Jedi. Keep reaching for the stars, I will.
