I'm a self-professed geek with an artistic streak. By day I'm a mild-mannered software developer. By night my artistic side takes hold. I write. I make movies.
All the time I'm a husband/father/friend/all around nice guy.
Some call me...Tim.
It's no secret. I write. I'm highly trained, highly motivated and highly disciplined.
You name it I've probably written it. I 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.
Writing is hard work. Hours upon hours of working away, busting your ass while your friends arew out drinkng beer and playing Rock Band. You never know what's going to happen with your work. So why do this?
Because this is how I'm wired. Period. It's a tough journey, at times it's a lonely journey. But I wouldn't have it any other way. You can track my progress over on my blog if you're interested.
I wrote a novel in 2009, I'm working on my second. Learn more about my writing.
Lonely as writing can be, you only need to rely on you. Sit your butt down at the keyboard and write, dammit. That separates the writer from the wanna-be.
Film is different. It's a collaborative medium, an entire team needs to pull together and work toward a common goal to produce something. You take risks, sometimes they pay off and sometimes they don't.
I've been fascinated with movies since I was a kid, when I'd bang out a script on an old manual typewriter. Naturally that drew me to work on an access TV station (poor man's film school) and drew me to the theatre program at Salem State.
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.

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.
