Lets see... Grew up in the South, despite all the running away I've done, it will always be a part of me. I have the accent to prove it. I take quite a bit of pride in where I came from, and I spend a lot of time trying to live down some of the unflattering stereotypes.
I played baseball as a kid, I fished, I read too much -- yadda yadda. In high school I fell in love with video editing software and went to college for film. In college I fell back in love with writing and went to grad school for that.
After grad school I swallowed the lump in my throat, packed my guitar and flannel and drove across the country -- God I do love a road trip. Finally I landed in LA, where I'm writing and working in feature film development.
I am often struck by the hilarity and absurdity of life in LA and the priorities of the industry I find myself in. I guess I'll get worried when I stop noticing it.
