Hello, readers, welcome to my site! Here’s a little bit about me.
I’m originally from the Orlando-Sanford area in Florida. Moved up to Michigan as a kid and to this day, as Stevie Ray Vaughan once said, “Couldn’t stand the weather.”
I have four main passions in life: music, movies, roller coasters and, as you could probably tell, sports. I come from a family of musicians and can play four instruments (drums, bass, piano and guitar). My three favorite authors are J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and Robert Louis Stevenson. My favorite film director(s) is a tie between Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese and my top five films are Pulp Fiction, The Empire Strikes Back, Jaws, The Wizard of Oz and The Godfather. Cedar Point is my Mecca, and it’s also why I hate Hondas – which is a long, completely separate story for another day. You know those Thrills, Chills and Spills theme park specials they air on Discovery during Memorial Day Weekend? That’s essentially my Shark Week.
My love for writing and film stems back to a short horror story I wrote back during my senior year of high school. It gave two of my classmates nightmares. Tim and Marissa, if you ever stumble upon this site, there’s your nod. I still have it on file and looking back at it, the dialogue is laughable and the story is – well, crap. Today, it would easily earn a spot in my “What the Hell Were They Thinking?!” segment. You gotta start somewhere, though, and it’s that story and all those dumb, dopey little short films I made with my friends that gave me my learning experiences.
I use to have a pretty bad addiction to Rob Schneider and Adam Sandler films. I was saved and rehabilitated by both Francis Ford Coppola and Quentin Tarantino after watching The Godfather and Reservoir Dogs. God knows where I’d be now if not for them. Probably giving Grown Ups and its sequel an A+ .
Well, that’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the site!
