Even though I come across as pretty serious, I also like to laugh and make others laugh! Louie C.K. and Jon Stewart are American heroes. And of course, the occasional Youtube clip like the Morgan Freeman GPS video. (We all should have Morgan Freeman GPS. The sound of the voice alone will inspire you to drive well.)
I’ve been doing theater since childhood which has led to my current job teaching drama and film. Also, I've been writing and directing films for several years now. I like to make thrillers and sci fi but I’ve also done a few comedies and musicals. After winning some awards, I am getting my latest film ready for its worldwide debut!
I've been involved in programs that try to make education more equitable and even though I work in a private school now I work to educate my privileged students about these inequities. Teaching high school students (and sometimes college students) gives me energy and inspiration.
I have two wonderful daughters. Being a single dad is great and very challenging. I’m ready for the right partner, and because I already have two kids, she needs to be someone who is okay with not having more children.
