Director Sizzle Reel
"I fell in love with films at a very young age, staying up as a young boy during the weekends or school holidays to watch films with my parents who loved movies. I fell in love with 'The Dollars Trilogy', comedies with Peter Sellers and science fiction - 'The Day the Earth Stood Still', 'War of the Worlds' and 'King Kong'.
Though I couldn't always remember the stories, the images from films like 'Midnight Cowboy' 'Papillon' and 'Where Eagles Dare' stayed with me. However, seeing 'Star Wars', 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' and 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' forever imprinted into my mind the emotions, ideas, and grandeur of movie storytelling magic.
Though I originally fell into acting, film has always been my goal. Now I am retired from performance I am embracing the creation of cinema magic, understanding the business and bringing my extensive experience and personal philosophy to become the best film director I can possibly be. To bring cinematic magic to the audience in the way movies affects me is my primary soul fulfilling purpose'.
