My self-summary
I arrived via forceps a couple of weeks early, seventh generation D.C., and so, did time in an incubator. I lived a couple of blocks from the Zoo on Walbridge Place and was perambulated by my nanny, Aunt Catherin to the zoo every day where I developed simultaneously, a love of peanuts and wild animals (OK, so they were behind bars), and a tolerance for the smell of poop, (both, my own and the furry animals'). Seven years later, I was moved to the Chesapeake Bay, where I crabbed on a dock of the Bay and could regularly catch enough to make diner for me, my mom and dad. I attended schools in Annapolis Maryland where I sailed, Bluche sur Sierre, Switzerland where I skied, and met Tennessee Williams, and Paris, France where I rowed crew, and met Alan Resnais. I acted in many many plays as a kid, won a competitive performance scholarship to Drama school, University of North Carolina, got interested in foreign and avant garde film/video, made small avant garde (New American Cinema) films, attended graduate school and was equipment manager for Gerald O'Grady's The Center for Media Study, SUNY Buffalo, where I studied with Hollis Frampton, Paul Sharits, James Blue and Woody Vasulka. I made more films and video, performance pieces, and Direct Cinema documentaries, University Professor at Denison and Hollins, summers in Europe and at a loft on Greene St. in SoHo, designed and directed an interdisciplinary ancient Greek Civilization program with 35 students for two months and 12 credit hours throughout the Greek islands and Peloponnese for a couple of years. For many years I traveled extensively with University arts students throughout Europe, Turkey and Israel, worked as an associate producer and on a number of award winning documentaries Including "Honorable Nations" which won a national Emmy award for documentary, opened Third Millennium Designs, a cool gallery of high-end contemporary art and design, furniture and furnishings. I spawned a beautiful 10 pound son! I renovated a number of houses including my present home of fifteen years, a 40' by 40' circa 1740 soft brick, (they were baked on site as was all wood, cut and pit sawed on site), four part, three story, with flanking chimneys to six working fireplaces on four acres in Annapolis. I am a Boy Scout leader, a volunteer discussion leader with Touchstones Discussion Project at The Jessup Correctional facility and the Annapolis Senior Center. I volunteer with International World Artist Associates and MC, introduce and discuss the work at their annual film festival in Annapolis. I have been both blessed and humbled much more than could ever have reasonably been expected, and for all of this, I am eternally grateful. I have a wonderful teenage son some of the time and also have an empty place for a brilliant and interesting woman in my life. Are you out there? Like me?

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?
On a typical Friday night I am
with friends playing or at home watching a film or reading...thinking about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.
