I love animals.
As a teenager I read good old Stephen King late at night. Nowadays I admire Stewart O'Nan, Philip Roth, Raymond Carver and many other great authors. I love books. I love stories. That's why I studied at the New York Film Academy. "Make the audience care!" they taught us. And that's what I try to accomplish. I love commercials with humour and working with kids and animals.
In my career I had the honor of recieving Advertising Awards as well as Awards for my Feature Films.
But honor alone doesn't fulfill you. At the end of the day, you have to love what you do. And you have to be thankful and care for people who do not have the luck you have. - And treat all people with great respect.
And that thing with Wimbledon. - I was there. Walked down Church Road. Sat on Center Court, Quarter Finals. In the 2nd row. Federer, Nadal, Murray. With a "Pimms" in my hand. I'm blessed. And since I play Tennis myself, I'll probably play the Wimbledon Qualifying next year. Or they'll give me a Wild Card. Either way is fine with me.
It's never too late to start a second career.
