DG: What is your specialty…filmmaking or screenwriting? If filmmaking, which aspects?

My specialty is directing and editing.

DG: What are you currently working on?

I’m finishing up my first feature film. It’s a mockumentary about assassins. Like Spinal Tap only with hitmen.

DG: Who do you consider your mentor and why?

I consider James Cameron a mentor. He inspired me as a child when I first saw The Terminator which he wrote, directed and designed. I was excited by the idea that there was a job that let you write, design, and shoot your own films.

DG: Why do you think the horror/scifi genres have such a large following?

We all have fears and fantasies and I think the horror/scfi genre is perfect for exploring the “what if” in the existential endeavor we call human existence.

DG: What do you love most about this business?

Coming together with fellow artists to create new worlds.

DG: What do you dislike most about this business?

Posers who don’t have respect for the craft.

Finishing my feature project.

DG: Any advice you’d like to give to newbies?

Do your homework and endeavor to create something no one has seen before.

DG: Anything else you’d like to say?

Be kind to yourself and others.
