I'm a one time "3rd culture kid" (aka Overseas Brat) whose life changed dramatically when dad's job took the family from a Chicago suburb to the Philippines and Ethiopia. The travel bug hit me and took me to 30 countries including Brazil where I met my wonderful wife.
I went to film school determined to become a Director, but came away more interested in writing screenplays and acting. The latter was the result of theater students repeatedly recruiting me to at first play the voice of God offstage, then subsequently appear onstage in roles including "Waffles" in Uncle Vanya..
I currently live outside of San Francisco with my wife and niece.
