BACKGROUND

As a child, I was a fan of television shows such as Battlestar Galactica, Star Blazers, M.A.S.H., and Magnum P.I., which would all instill a desire for character driven stories in a science fiction setting, as opposed to sci-fi driven-stories in a dramatic setting. (Imagine M.A.S.H. being all about the war instead of the characters...it just wouldn't be the same, or nearly as compelling). My first cable TV movie experience was seeing Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn, which would forever impact my imagination and creativity. Later influences would include Quantum Leap, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Back to the Future, and the Indiana Jones movies.

Writing was something that I was never good at in school, but had a strong passion for at home. Poetry, songs, and short stories were both my escape and a motivation to improve myself.

Eventually I headed south to Los Angeles with little in my possession but faith, independence, inspiration, and a sense of adventure. This experience has forever impacted my approach to life.

I worked extensively in the art & entertainment industries, supporting science fiction television and film such as Star Trek, Star Wars, Babylon 5, Xena Warrior Princess, Hercules, and many more. I worked with directors, writers, actors, and production crew in various venues. The Sci-Fi Industry also provided many opportunities for extensive travel and interaction with dedicated and obsessive fans from all sectors of life. This work and my passion for science fiction & art drove me to design cutting-edge imagery born from an active imagination.

During this time, I was able to study some aspects of production from the art department to directing while on the sets of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager with cast and crew that included Rene Auberjonois, Armin Shimerman, and Michael Piller.

I served as script-consultant and advisor for Richard Hatch in the production of Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming. This is where I was also given an opportunity to act, but didn't really catch the 'acting bug.' I suppose that to me, acting was delivering someone else's vision, while my own vision could be written and produced.

With a sense of adventure and a passion to improve science fiction via character-driven stories, I am inspired by exploration of the universe and time travel that leads us to improve ourselves. Exploring inner self through outward adventure has always been a fascinating concept for me.

Currently, I am seeking passionate people with excellent skill sets, talent, and resources for current and future 1947 Entertainment productions. If you have the passion, skill, and focus, please contact me for consideration.
