About me:I have always loved stories...as a kid I was a voracious reader, and discovered movies when I got older. I am fascinated by them, and I love telling stories visually. I have directed several short films and in the summer of 07 I directed my first feature, "Bubba's Chili Parlor". My second feature, "Monsterland", shot summer 2008, is finished; it's basically a scary re-working of "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland", except that Alice goes through her closet (instead of the rabbit hole) into a world of monsters. "In The Dead Of Night", the film I shot this past summer, is now complete and is being readied for the festival circuit. Pre-production has begun on my next film, "Paranormal". I've got two other projects in early development - more on those as they develop - it's too early to say anything about them yet! Anyway, feel free to drop me a line! ..
Who I'd like to meet:The King of all B-movie actors, Bruce Campbell. Hail to the King, baby.
