When I was in the second grade, my mother received a call from school. They were... concerned. My grades were excellent. I was well behaved. I was kind to the other kids in my class. It's just that... well, how do I put this?
I had recreated the entire set of the television show Moonlighting in miniature in my desk. Also, I was directing the other kids in reenactments of Disney movies on the playground using Little Golden Books as our "script." Apparently, these activities were a bit distracting from the school curriculum.
For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to understand how the things I love worked- to see if I could make them my own. My habit of deconstructing and tinkering extended to household appliances, art projects, toys, and later to technology. This curiosity and creative urge has stuck with my my whole life.
I love the art of storytelling and weave that into everything I do, whether I am working on a film or video project, writing a work of fiction, or building a software application. Science and technology are ultimately tools to help us communicate and to better understand the human experience. Humans are story-driven creatures and crave engaging experiences.
When I am not tinkering, I am adventuring. I like to spend time in the air, on top of mountains, under water, or out in the middle of nowhere with a telescope.
