Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I wanted to be an old-fashioned man of letters, so I essentially prepared myself very carefully through my 20s for a job that doesn't exist anymore....Just before all this happened, I thought, 'Out of everything you can do or think you can do, pick one thing and be it.' What I picked was to be the screenwriter.

Trivia:

Learned about the stories of The Essex and Tripoli when he was twelve years old and wrote the movies out and illustrated them without having seen a screenplay until he found Dylan Thomas' "The Doctor and the Devils". See more »
