The freedom he finds in art making is exactly what screenwriting cannot offer. No industry guidelines, no ‘notes from the channel’ and no pitch meetings. The simplicity of creating without restraint or prescription continues to intoxicate him daily. It’s also reflected in his chaotic and layer obsessed process. He pursues mixed media on a myriad of mediums to indulge line’s ability to depict energetic compositions.
He’s an obsessive art maker, a perfect day consists of writing in the morning, painting and drawing all afternoon, while the evenings are for books and film.
