Petra and I were invited to join some folks I work with for a retirement party. It was thrown by the world’s greatest boss, Carl Puccio. The night included dinner at the prestigious Sunda restaurant in downtown Chicago and then a giant old sailboat ride out into Lake Michigan to watch the fireworks. It would have been the perfect evening if it weren’t for me discovering that I have somehow lost my sea legs in old age over that last few years and am now very prone to motion sickness. Perhaps next time I will take the Dramamine before hand and not wait to see what happens when I get out on the open water.

I was drawing shortly after I could walk. I was creating worlds and characters in my mind and on paper before I could write my own name. I’ve spent the majority of my life painting, drawing, filming, photographing, writing and creating to make sense of this wonderful world.
Now I make short films mostly.
