I was programming computers at age nine, started selling used cars at fourteen, and was a paid actor at seventeen. I’ve directed award-winning independent films, authored two novels, four screenplays, and hosted a beauty pageant.
Today, I’m also semi-professional racecar driver who regularly instructs on the open track at Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ. You could say that I like a challenge, but it’s more than that. I like the learning, the growing, and just the plain doing of life in general. Perhaps you could call it the “performance” aspect of it, and on my resume I describe myself as a “passionate performer.” Passionate because I try to bring energy, excitement and commitment to everything I do; performer because I believe I’ve built a reputation for truly delivering each and every day.
Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
— George Bernard Shaw
This site isn’t intended to be a resume. It’s supposed to help enhance my formal qualifications by serving as a bit of biography and insight into my areas of interest. If you’re interested, you can use the contact form to request a copy of my official resume.
Generally speaking, I believe the diversity of my background — a used care salesman and technologist who went to film school and writes fantasy novels in his spare time — has always been one of my biggest strengths, along with my ability to communicate complex topics, the left and right brain storyteller in me. I thought it might also be helpful to round out my personality by listing the things I’ve been paid to do in life — separate from the jobs actually listed on my resume. In no particular order, I have performed all of the following services:
- Hot dog cart manager
- Used car salesman
- Photo lab operator (remember when they had those?)
- Photoshop trainer
- Graphic designer
- Web designer
- Web developer
- Audio mixer
If you’re interested, I also detail some additional areas of interest outside the main navigation.
