Official Site

This is my official site to share ongoing projects and concerns.

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 make.

I prefer simple living over consumerism. I freely employ sarcasm and dry humor to protest injustice, ignorance and indifference.

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

RE: Current Political News on an Ordinary Wednesday

Anyone else tired of the obvious and successful efforts to obscure the fact that our free press has been p0wn3d? Recent NY Times coverage of #Harvey taking every opportunity to bring more uncertainty concerning human influenced climate change.

Look for classic straw man nonsense in the Times' when quoting experts in the form of:

"While we know that human activity has affected sea level rise, when it comes to hurricane formation and frequency the answer is complex... in fact, it is yes and no".


Let Us Not Be Naive When It Comes To Morality and Violence

I run the risk of being a pedant here, but lets review the basics of morality and violence. Seeking to oppress-destroy and defense against tyranny are different things. History and the human experience clearly shows us that violence is sometimes necessary. Defending yourself against violence does not abet violence. Being a victim abets violence. This is so important that i must repeat in caps: BEING A VICTIM ABETS VIOLENCE. Violence is like fire, an intrinsic aspect of reality. Neither fire nor violence can be attributed qualities as 'good or evil' in themselves. Knowing when violence becomes necessary is called wisdom. Platitudes like 'all violence is bad all the time' are for the naive and magical thinking will certainly not stop tyranny.
