My self-summary
I'm an independent filmmaker. Increasingly active in the secular and skeptic community. I enjoy watching movies at the local theater or on Netflix, reading books or online articles with my iPad, hiking with the humanist meetup group, and listening to podcasts while I work out in the morning.

I'd love to make science-based and secularism-focused entertainment for the foreseeable future.
What I’m doing with my life
Working hard on my first feature film. I shot it with some friends of mine and now I'm almost done editing. It's been a tough ride, but I've learned a lot. Can't wait to get it out there.

As Vice President of the group, helping run Atheists United.
I’m really good at
Cleanliness and organization.

Video Editing
- Big fan of FCPX.

Photography / Cinematography
- One of my biggest interests. Always has been.

Budgeting
- YNAB is my jam.

The six things I could never do without
OmniFocus
- A productivity app for the iPhone, Mac and iPad. It's the best one I've seen for power users of GTD.

A Budget
- I like giving every dollar I have a job and tracking my expenses. Helps me save up for things I really care about.

A Schedule
- I'm the type of person who puts sleep on my calendar. You can extrapolate from there.

A Goal
- Usually several, but having something to strive for each day really helps.

My iPhone
- Powers everything above. And so much more.

Friends & Family
- To make it all worthwhile.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Finishing my movie and distributing it. Wondering what the reaction will be.

The problems with faith-based beliefs and how to counteract them with reason and science.
"The Long Reach of Reason"
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing in your friendly neighborhood poker tournament.

Or catching a movie at Arclight.

Sunday night is either watching an HBO (or Netflix) show at home or going out for some karaoke.
You should message me if
Any of the above appeals to you.
