life is only boring if you can't think of something to challenge yourself with. consequently i have spent most of my life trying new things and new experiences. thus far i have directed and written a short film, worked as an architect's apprentice, worked for a printer, a magazine, and started a high technology firm several years ago which has evolved into scescape today. most of my influences are creative ones. even technical problems are not handled logically. ask anyone, i have no sense of logic. i try to find the most graceful, efficient, and open-ended solutions to whatever problems present themselves and the end result is that things always work out.

anyone who is considered a creative type, and shudder an artist will no doubt have a series of influences at hand, usually drawn from a very politically correct list someone else created. on the other hand my list, while not as politically balanced, does reflect a degree of honesty. so without laboring on them: frank lloyd wright, nin, sylvia plath, edgar allan poe, friedrich durrenmatt, friedrich nietzsche, albert camus, martin scorsese, abel ferrara. maybe if some people ask i will say more, but most creative sorts tend to spend too much time discussing and not enough creating.

my father once said to me that i would always be moving on to other things. i disagree. everything i have done until now has been working to this point, an evolution. perhaps this will evolve even beyond my vision. but one thing is certain - it is what i want to do.
