Personal Quote:

If you look at the Earth from space, you see a slice of desert that divides the First from the Third World. I am incredibly drawn to what lies beneath that, where contrasts are stronger but more sincere. I like creating protagonists out of people who are anything but: regaling two little boys shots worthy of a John Wayne epic. See more »
