Did you ever have something you just loved so much as a kid that it changed your whole world? A car? A drum set? For me, it was a motorcycle. A 1982 Honda XL250R Dual Sport bike with a Pro-Link Suspension. God, I loved that motorcycle. But let me go back a bit. Growing up, […]

I remember my first sleepover at Scott Maginnis’ house.  Scott and I met in kindergarten, and have been friends ever since. Sleepovers were a big deal for me, because my house was under pretty strict rule, and spending the night at a friends’ house held the promise of late night dessert, no bedtime and other […]

Growing up in Southern California in the 70’s, it was pretty hard to avoid skateboarding.  The craze hit my neighborhood hard.  I grew up on a block with twelve boys all within a few years of my age, and almost collectively, we fell in love with skateboarding.  I started with a Black Knight board, which […]

Coming up with an idea.  In the creative world, that is the key that starts the engine.  If you are going to make a living in the arts, you had better have the stomach to sit in a room—alone–and search the outer recesses of your brain for something that seems viable, original, and (often most […]
