I've always been attracted to doing the nearly impossible, not the impossible; that would be crazy. I wanted to make a fun animated film, so I created "On the Rise," which was in 36+ film fests and won multiple awards. I want to do a feature film so I wrote, "Spirit of the Rain," which also won multiple awards, but still exists only on paper. I've also designed stuff that flew to a comet and collected its "dust" (Stardust project), been a concert organist, a TV producer and a co-producer of the largest global teleconference in history and a bunch of other stuff.
