This is a video I made after my recent visits to three museums on 1st Sunday (Dimanche) in Paris - The Louvre, The Centre Pompidou, and Musée d'Orsay. The permanent collections at the Musée de la Vie romantique and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris offer FREE ENTRY all year round. In fact, all of the fourteen City of Paris museums offer year-round free admission.

I threw this video together today. I'd shot some footage in Laguna Beach the other day and remembered I had these cool images of galaxies (from the Hubble site I think). Anyway, it came together. I think I need to buy a Blackmagic URSA Mini camera and take this hobby a little more seriously. That, and make a few huge paintings and other fine art. And for goodness sakes, sell my literary works!

This is an open for America's Mock Election TV Special, which has to do with staging a (presidential) Student Mock Election. Will be part of an hour long show shot in Maryland in late October, 2016. Edited in iMovie. Stock footage, stills, and soundtrack from Shutterstock. Put together in two days.

My boss gave me 80 acres of land in Utah. This is a video I did about going to southwest Utah (Cedar City) to have the land surveyed.

I used to blog a lot. I think I did about 250 blogs in ten years. Many of them were well researched, crazy inventive works. I saved most of them. In nearly all of them I did some sort of accompanying image. Often these images were fabricated from multiple sources (sometimes my photos). Here's one.

I have a collection of "test palettes" and in this case it was on a piece of plywood. One day I was looking at it and realized there was a lady and her child waiting to be refined. And voila!

There's a lady in a pink hat in this image. I didn't see her until I finished it. Sneaky lady! (I think she's the Queen of England.)

Said "I just watched 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' for the tenth time. It helps me to think about the core of what love is so I can remember being in love when I write about it in my novels and screenplays, or if I do art about love. So go watch it again. Hurry."

Said "I am revamping my novels, and editing as needed. Need an objective reader. Doing okay in the screenplay department, but my literary work frustrates me."

About Me:
I have held roles as a Sr. Art Director, Creative Director, and Sr. Copywriter with advertising agencies in Oregon and California. I am currently living in Orange County, CA, working for a small film company. I enjoy doing writing as my main source of income, though I have a great deal of experience as an illustrator (packaging, mostly). My screenplays have placed in contests, and excerpts (of novels) have been published online and in print. Thanks for looking
at these samples. I'm very fast and fun to work with.
