one's history leaks information so I will obfuscate the answer for the moment using one version of my story: I was born in ca but moved around a bunch in the states- east coast/ mid atlantic/paris- as a young man. my family moved every 2-3 years. (ibm company moves not running from the law). I resettled here after formal studies but I started to travel working on documentaries and corporate videos as a sound man- 150k+miles/ year. I came into contact with a good spectrum of the human condition- love, war, famine, genocide creativity, banality. modeling myself unconsciously after my folks I taught myself to be unaffected by jet lag, months without days off, fatigue, hunger, thirst and you get the picture. people described me as preternaturally calm. I was for the most part. years passed.
my 20 year relationship developed a slight tremor and then fractured irreparably. sitting at the kitchen table eating breakfast with my then 9 year old son (now almost 13) I considered what exactly I had been modeling for him in my desire to be maximally efficient work wise. mind expansion noises followed and I began the long return journey to connecting with actual feelings. I can now integrate a deep and sobering world knowledge with the bright-eyed, boundless curiosity, fearlessness and laughter that lured me out into the world in the first place as a very young man. makes for a interesting dad, anyhew.
so about me then? well, I love art, I love talking, sharing, debating, listening and learning about anything you are interested in. I am as physical as I am mental- it is the most effective way of clearing my head to be creative. I smile and laugh a whole bunch- not a vulcan anymore.
