So a few years ago I flew the corporate coop and began deep-diving the lives of interesting people. Mostly the weirder kids now adults doing things differently. Honestly I didn't know what I was doing nor what I was up against. But I'm a therapist with an artist's heart, apparently I knew just enough.
So big pic I hope to do more than just create good media. I hope to do some good too. Too me story is a kind of medicine, perhaps the best kind. If it's honest it grants people the respect they need to make changes if they so want to. We also hope to also support some worthwhile causes along the way.
On the personal side, I'm dad to gem of a kid with Down Syndrome named Gus. He's the only person I know who makes everything alright, without trying. I have a dream of helping widen the path for magical souls like him. Perhaps media will help with this.
When I'm not producing, I'm doing therapy. I like working with creative types and vets. I'm a vet also. Some of my friends and advisers are too, if you look at our "About" page you'll see them there.
I hope you enjoy whatever you get your hands on. And perhaps, it does you some good however you define that.
