Happily married for 18 years, two beautiful, talented children. Native of New Orleans, one of the greatest cities in the world.
I sold Bibles and books door-to-door four summers during college. After studying Fine Arts, I worked a stat camera, ran a press, stripped negatives, and worked in typesetting and layout. After building cars for Damiler-Benz, building a 45 foot pleasure boat, installing 1000 pool fences, along with shooting display fireworks for Precision Pyrotechnics, permitting traveling shows like Aerosmith, Metallica and Green-Day, and working for the SFX legend, Dave Nami, I joined IATSE local 478 to work in SFX. Incorporating all the pieces of my life experience, i am excited to be in this awesome business with the people like John Baker, Clay Pinney, Bob Riggs, Bill Harrison, Johnny Franco, Don Goldman and so many other great people from actors to craft services to transportation. I really can't wait to go to work everyday.
