I lived in Denver, San Francisco and Los Angeles for 11 years. I moved to Ecuador for some time, now. I founded Artist Interviews LLP (online promotion for artists) in 2001, together with my son Mauricio Saravia, who passed away in December 12,2008. I continue working for artistinterviews.com and I just finished writing my son's biography. His life story is unique and very touching. He was an artist of different expressions: painting, drawing, graphic design, poetry, electronic music and he also performed in some short films in Hollywood. The amazing part of the story is that he suffered from birth a terrible genetic mutation called McCune-Albright, which causes physical and emotional pain. (look up in Wikipedia) I expect to encourage other persons with similar medical condition and to open the hearts and minds of people who don't understand what it means to overcome what he had to. Everyone who met him and they were hundreds, say his story should be a bio-pic. The book's title is The Magical Life of Mauricio Saravia. You can read about him in his official site: www.mauriciosaravia.com I am sure that there is a producer somewhere who could see how amazing story is this to take it to the screen.
