About Me


I'm showing a movie at the Winnipeg Aboriginal Film Festival


I'm about bringing people together and making dreams come true... and, living in the now.


All there is is now. So, live in the present, and don't dwell on past and future. The most important thing you can give anyone is your presence.


I'm interested in animation, giant puppets, drawing, making music, presence, being silent, and first nations issues. I am also interested in building community.

Music, Movies, and Books

I've been reading a lot of Eckhart Tolle. Can you tell?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I helped organize a team of friends, and we put a car in a demo derby in Tunbridge Vermont. My friend Curt was the driver. We rigged the car with video cameras and made a movie of the whole thing.

Teach, Learn, Share

These days, I've been teaching animation, and cardboard tech. I can make all sorts of things out of cardboard, and so can you. Back in the day, I spent a lot of time studying the brain, as well as sleep and REM sleep. This all started with an interest in lucid dreaming. So, we could talk about that too.

Countries I’ve Lived In
