No Shortcuts is Cut

It took me a year but my one-man band short film "No Shortcuts" is complete. I have sent it off to a few film festivals for consideration, and no it's fate is to wait and see. Eventually I let it out to dance in the public, but first I want to see it on big screen. For more information click the link above or read my blog post.

Won't Stop Skanking

Before the uninitiated get triggered, "skanking" is a dance that is commonly performed when listening to ska. Why won't I stop doing it? Because I love ska and FINALLY I found some place to spout that joy. Tom Buck is a Content Creator/YouTuber I greatly enjoy and after much needling from me, he started a ska podcast. I won't spoil the rest, because it's all in the adjoining podcast ep. So hit play, grab your checkered chucks and let the skanking commence.

In November, the Cinematic Heartland podcast had me on to talk my filmmaking journey and projects. Hosted by Kevin Isaacson of I like IKE films, it was a really fun hour talking filmmaking and what's my drive to tell stories. Talked about many things I've blogged about, The Film Lounge series on Iowa PBS, and much more. If you've got an hour, download my episode and listen on your next workout, commute, shopping spree, or quarantine cry.

Welcome! I'm a man of many hats. But also many socks, cameras, guitars, and anecdotes. You probably didn't come here for all of that, however this is a jumping off point for any of it. Should you find something here interesting, reach out! I am very a collaborative and friendly guy. I get excited at the prospect of everything from mowing the lawn to climbing a wind turbine. If you have a project you need an extra set of hands on, I know a guy with a good set of hands.

Need to get me a gift?

For some reason I don't fully understand, I have been told I am hard to buy gifts for. That is ridiculous. I have so many interests and hobbies I should be considered the easiest person to shop.

So to make this super simple for anyone looking to buy me a gift, here is my personal amazon wish list. A lot of this stuff is expensive, but if you aren't getting something off that list at least you've got somewhere to jump off from.
