What makes me tick and where I come from- Was born the same year that DR. NO (1962) premiered. His first movie, viewed at age 3 was MONSTER ON THE CAMPUS(1958), which led to a series of recurring nightmares with a floating hand ...and was hooked on monster movies and Famous Monsters from that moment on. By age 8 he had his own movie theater and ran it successfully for sveral summers in his garage. All thanks to 8mm sound projector and good old Castle and Blackhawk films. He appeared as a background actor/extra in Fear No Evil(1981) -a film that domninated the Drive-In ciscuit that year at the boxoffice. He some how knew marketing and promotions would play a very important role in his film-loving life. He has worked for Time Warner and Regal Entertainment (QUANTUM OF SOLACE was his 2nd promo job!)and knows there 's nothing wrong with reading comic books and watching cartoons well into your 50s. He loves writing and claims that's what keeps his brain all squishy and nimble-like.
