More than anything else I love a good story with a powerful narrative, so these days I'm much more into the independents than the Hollywood variety. My film-related background is varied. I'm a writer-director and have made several television documentaries. For the past 11 years I have been an organizer of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, and I'm the co-founder of Cinema Italiano, an Italian film festival in Santa Barbara, CA. Currently I have an on-line blog about foreign and American independent film at www.ifilmguru.com.
I look forward to sharing my enjoyment of film with others. Prior to my move back to New Orleans, I belonged to film groups in Santa Barbara and Ventura, CA.
I grew up in New Orleans but moved to Southern California 32 years ago. Now I'm returning home.
