Once a Biologist, an avian specialist during his teens, he was a certified Falconeer by 19, and worked with leading Zoologists and Veternarians while living in San Antonio, Texas. Continuing┬áhis education he returned to school in northern Minnesota with dreams of Hockey and Veternary Fame. Bad knees and stifling protocol of the scientific world, and a late blooming urge to come out – c.1982 folks –┬áhe threw himself into art and theatre and has been immersed ever since.

Skipping out on NYU, he cut his teeth in film making during the ol’ days of celluloid as a grip/electric on 100+ of sets for independent features, television, commercials, and industrial productions.
