These are some more words about me:

People usually ask what part of England I'm from. I reply, "Australia". Because that's where I'm from. I was born in Sydney and grew up in Brisbane. Sometime after that I lost my way in the desert and eventually found my way out. Today I live in Portland, Oregon amongst the tall trees and wayward comrades. I try my best to enjoy life with my lovely wife, Michele and golden retriever, Hank. We spend our days learning how to have fun and make the most of life.

 

Aside from making films and writing stuff down, I play drums, eat chips and salsa whenever possible, enjoy scotch a little too much, and suffer intense mood swings because of Manchester United.

Lastly, there are a few things I treasure more than people truly being themselves: vulnerable, exposed, revealing insecurities, and finding the humor and joy in being just that. That is a human, truly living life. Also, I once ran a mile.
