I grew up in a tiny Kansas town. I used to hate telling people that, but now I’m proud of it. We never had much money, and I like that, it was a gift. My parents are named Mary and Gary, my grandpa’s name was Larry, but I’m not Barry and my brother’s not Jerry, which is fortunate.

I haven’t done anything of even marginal importance or significance, I mainly just like to make things and help where I can. I have some degrees but haven’t won an Oscar, or any awards of any kind.

I’m currently Creative Director at the Fuller Youth Institute where make films and design things. I also speak at conferences and events throughout Southern California.
