I am the creative type that is all mind but no hands - means I will be looking to work with really good artists who can understand what i am imagining in my head and be able to capture it in their art. I feel a lot of times - because I can't draw (or play the piano) the artist or musician gets to force their style on me. I hope to be able to share the vision and hopefully get the shots in my head illustrated on paper.

At present, I am writing two books and embarking on another journey to produce yet another documentary project. In 1998, I attended the Cannes Film Festival and took advantage of the opportunity to present one of my previous multimedia accomplishments - a documentary that I wrote, edited, produced and distributed as a marketing and fundraising resource for St. Augustine's Episcopal Church located in lower Manhattan (a former parish of Trinity Church on Wall Street) for its Slave Gallery Project under the auspices of the Lower East Side Tenement Museum.
