Inspiration, perspiration, rejection, persistence, encouragement...the life of a writer
It's no secret. I write. I'm highly trained, highly motivated and highly disciplined.
You name it I've probably written it. I used to contribute somewhat regularly to
Listen magazine. My work's appeared in The Nashua Telegraph. I've placed in screenplay contests and
even had a short story land in Alterna Tales #1 and on ZebraMag.
my Master's degree in English from Rivier College, got my undergrad
in Communications at Salem State with a minor in theatre.
Writing is hard work. Hours upon hours of working away, busting your ass while your friends are
out drinkng beer and playing Rock Band. You never know what's going to happen with your work. So why do this?

I've been fascinated with movies since I was a kid, when I'd bang out a script on an old manual

I met some awesome people there, I learned so much...
I got back in touch with some of my old friends and invested in some killer gear. We're shooting on
a Canon EOS 7D, using a Zoom H4N digital audio recorder, and some other cool stuff...and doing cool stuff.
I led a team through the 48 hour film project and I've been making short movies. Someday I hope
to tackle a feature. You can check out the results on my YouTube channel.

Tim, Google's down. Can you fix it for me?
alphabet soup that makes the web work. Sorry, I can't fix your network, or build you a nice Flash animation,
or figure out why Google gives you music when you type in meat loaf.
Can I help you with your project? It depends on what it is. If you're using .NET technologies,
HTML, or even PHP the answer is probably depending on my workload. If you need Java, Flash,
or some other strange acronym the answer is probably not.
Yeah, I'm a geek. Sometimes I geek out. I can't help it.
