Welcome! Won’t you please come in?

Welcome, visitor!  This is my first ever web presence.  It is (obviously) designed to communicate my capabilities to prospective employers.  It features some selected works from my past few years, in Video, Motion Picture and written words.

I hope this site also conveys a sense of WHO I am and how I show up in my world.  Anais Nin said ” We don’t see thhings as they are, we see them as we are”.  By that she means that we create the world we live in by our attitude, our approach and our thoughts.  I make a great effort to live in ‘choice’ in the Buddhist sense of the word.  That is the awareness of our ability to CHOOSE how we are around certain things.  Events, Accidents, Chaos, Conflict and Harmony all present challenges to our equanimity.  I choose calm, thoughtfulness, decisive considerate action.  This is my way of being, and it has proven to be very productive, and very empowering to those around me as well.  It’s a Win-Win!  And I continue to learn, each and every day.
