A Pirate Looks At Forty

Thanks, Jimmy Buffett. Forty was actually a few years ago, but looking back, I think forty may be when things changed. It's been a long time since an age really affected me.

Driving at 16 may have been the biggest one--that freedom that comes with wheels, even when you manage to wreck those wheels a couple times (and they don't belong to you--Sorry Dad).

Drinking at 21 was some sort of milestone, but most people don't pay any attention to that one. What other age matters? Voting? Okay, that 18th birthday--legally recognized adult and voting and all... But who at 18 really cares about that. R-rated movies at 17? Nope.

Here, finally, is my student thesis film. A lot of people came together to make
this happen and I can't thank them enough. So grab some popcorn and enjoy.

An awkward young girl is bullied by kids in her neighborhood. When she has had enough, she casts a spell to give them a taste of their own medicine…and add to her collection.

Anderson Wake

I wrote this little story a couple years ago and published it in a collection called Down the Psycho Path. Through an odd set of circumstances, I got the opportunity to make it into a film. Those circumstances will be divulged later, but I had just found out about my pancreas problem (long story short, I can't eat fat anymore) and there I was at a road-side diner with a few friends discussing putting together some short films for a possible series. I'm sipping iced tea and watching all of them eat cheeseburgers.
