Artist, Husband, Father, Teacher

This is my official site to share ongoing projects, writings, events and thoughts.

I am the child of a concert pianist and Navy Seal. I pursued jazz sax through childhood, then, as a young man, Architecture & the Arts. This formal education led to early career adventures in feature film production.

I am curious, passionate, loyal, dedicated, persistent and open. I use art and movement to share the fullness of life. I am happy with simple living. I employ dry sarcasm, irony and obscure literary references to express anger and dissatisfaction with injustice, ignorance and indifference.

Since age 10 I have pursued intensive mind-body training and deep inquiry into the human condition.

Still Undecided?

Headshot vision

If you are undecided in this election cycle, back up, take a deep breath and have a closer look at:

  1. The party platform and planks
  2. The candidates' record of public service
  3. The candidates' core supporters rhetoric
  4. False equivalence

Vote based on your comfort level with all of the above. Oh and if you consider yourself a patriot, read the Preamble for clarification.  If you don't have time to look it up, here it is.

The Democracy Test

If we are serious about democracy, educated citizens are required. If you are against an educated citizenry, you are against democracy. This simple test separates the fascists and demagogues from legitimate statesman, regardless of party affiliation or rhetoric. #demotest

How does your candidate do on the Democracy Test?

No one who is against education ever says straight out that they are against education. One might hint that "A university education might not be for everybody". This is true when applied to one or another individual, but demonstrably false when made into official policy. Don't get me started on the school voucher debacle.
