Personal Quote:

I think that we live in a time where it's easier to be suspicious of dedicated men and women, people dedicated to their craft, because the world around them inspires them to be lazy. It inspires them to be negative. It inspires them to be snarky. See more »

Trivia:

His song "This House Is Not For Sale" shares aspects with the story of the film Beetlejuice (1988). See more »
