A quick fore-note that most of my work is now through my production company, Woodlette.
If you clicked on this page, it’s because you want to know something about me, or are doing some snooping, or considering me for “something,” or all of the above. I’m taking that as license to write about myself, unabashedly, and trust that they might actually be read.
A few personal details of various import:
I have a degree in philosophy from Berkeley and worked in organ transplant coordinating surgeries before I went all-in on film.
In a prior career, I have held live, beating, human hearts. By my count, this career helped save some 1,000 lives so I feel I’ve done my part and am fine just working for pleasure and money now.
I love working with comedians, yet often put them in sad roles. Honestly it surprises me every time I do it. “Oh, I made a funny person do a sad thing again. Shit.”
I love working with talent, period, and come from a voiceover background myself. You may in fact remember me from that one Toyota spot where I played “Guy Who Loves Vroom sound…”
Probably, I should have been in radio. In fact I was in radio as a host of the Black Spot Show on Pirate Cat Radio for two years.
I pride myself on being an engine, pushing projects forward with a smile and coax. Good food is mandatory for my crews.
Rhythm, and pacing are incredibly important to me. The sounds of words, the time emotion takes, space, intensity, it’s all a symphony.
Sometimes I put my hands together in photos.
