I have lots of interests. I mean A LOT. I love filmmaking- directing, cinematography, screenwriting... I love animation. I love photography- the craft of working with a manual camera, celluloid, and shaping light. And, I love to draw.

It's all cyclical to me. One interest gives way to another during the course of the year. I'll go for long stretches on something than suddenly change, much to the detriment of my career.

I occasionally get freelance work, but I prefer to work on my own art at this point and will almost never take a commission.
