What I’m doing with my life
Busy creating a film business in my new new home, but always makes time to get active outdoors, wander neighbourhoods, drink good coffee, Photograph strangers, peruse the galleries and notice the smaller things in life.
I’m really good at
Making a mouth watering green smoothie in the morning from vegetables in my garden. Sometimes not so mouth watering but super nutritious.
Going through the fridge and making a great salad with the leftovers.
Making a tense person relax.
The ability to keep in tune with my passions.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes. I have been told they can cause trouble.
My accent. It gets mixed up with about three different countries. on the second or third try someone usually gets it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies - Baraka, Samsara, Kubrick films - A 2001 A Space Odyssey, The Godfather, The Matrix, Being John Malkovich, Boy, Whalerider and anything by David Lynch
Music - a varied taste... I've gone through many genres depending on what country I've lived in and the friends I make (I keep a lot of musician friends) but it tends to bounce around World & Electronica
Food - A very open palette to food that is healthy and vegetarian.
Books - Metaphysics / spirituality (of an eastern based nature) have been a big part of my life and the related books have filled up a good part of my bookshelf for the last 20 years. I've recently given away the vast majority of my books in my collection... Clean slate. These days I absorb any information related to learning the art of film.
The six things I could never do without
Friends & family
Access to the ocean
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My mind can somewhat be an Alice in Wonderland: life, death, sex, art, purpose
On a typical Friday night I am
Something that may involve: Drinks or dinner with friends in one of San Francisco's interesting neighbourhoods, Exercising, a film, watching sunset on Ocean beach, out photographing, filming on my drone or shooting a time-lapse.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm quite an open book, and can tell you my fears, weaknesses, lessons I've learnt, passions in person. We can only go so deep as far as at least one person is willing to bare their soul. We can also learn about hearing from other people's lessons as a lesson for ourselves
