I was born in Ft. Walton Beach, FL, but have lived in the South Bay pretty much my whole life. I consider San Jose to be my home town. I currently live in Sunnyvale in with my cat, Hermione. I graduated from SJSU in 1995 with a BA in Music. I love lots of styles of music, and went on to compose film scores part-time for about 10 years after I graduated. Scoring films led to my passion for video and film, and in 2006 I became a full-time, professional videographer and started my own business in 2008, which I still own, filming a handful of weddings and events per year. I also have a passion for travel. To date, I've been to nearly 30 countries, and all 7 continents as of 2004. I've done costumed travel events in both England and France. I visit fairly often to London but also love Kauai and Jamaica. I was married for 18 yrs but recently divorced. I have a girlfriend. My favorite sports teams are the Sharks, Earthquakes, and Raiders, and across the pond, Chelsea F.C. (EPL).
