Writer and screenwriter.
The first thing that I was ever proud of was writing a story.
Then I went to school and after that got a real job. I’ve worked in and around film and television since 1995. I started in technical support for Silicon Graphics based special effects tools and very quickly thought that it’d be much more fun on the other side of things. Moving over to production, I worked with a number of animation companies, ending up in all sorts of director, script editor and writer roles for web and television. Which was like that very first thing I did, but with bigger budgets.
And then somewhere in the middle of that I wrote the first part of a strange scifi comedy series, ‘Jan and The Spooky ... read more

The year was 1987. Kansas City, Missouri. I was turning 40 and wanted to start something new in life, so I went to hear a great jazz band, the City Light Orchestra. During break, I asked the saxophonist – Ahmad Alaadeen –– if he could recommend a saxophone teacher for me. He said he was teaching at the Charlie Parker Foundation for the Performing Arts and, to my surprise, he said he would teach me.
Alaadeen wanted me to play flute, but instead I started on alto sax. He went to a pawnshop to help me get my first sax. I knew nothing about music. My background was ballet. I had established a new ballet school designed to meet the unique needs of home-schooled students. Since I had never taken a music lesson ... read more
