Personal Quote:

I've made some films for the military that are teaching things like cultural awareness and leadership issues, that sort of stuff. And try to, in essence, look at what training they're doing and say, 'This is how you can improve the training from a humanistic point of view.' See more »

Trivia:

During his professional football career, he played for the Oakland Raiders and a Canadian Football League squad. See more »
