In a Few Words...

Which talent would you most like to have?

I would like to be able to have conversations with animals. Beyond that, I'd lilke to be a true polygot. I speak 3 lanuages but mostly at the 'street' level. It's so rewarding to travel & converse with locals in their native tongue - would love to excel in that.


What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Life achievement -- my family

Career achievement -- working in foreign countries in multiple currencies with crews of many spoken languages and degrees of experience -- not an easy task. On one film, only one person on my team had ever worked on a film before. The great reward is coming through successfully with an appreciation of how many different ways there are to do things. The bonus is a new set of lifeling friends.

Which word or phrase do you use the most?

We have so much to do!

Just one more thing...

Where's the nearest pool?


What do you look for on the Craft Services table?

Fresh squeezed juice, dark chocolate, not necissarily in that order


Please name a benefit of being an SDSA member.

I have had the great fortune of working with creative teams of people in challenging & exotic circumstances. I've been continually amazed at my great fortune of being paid to travel to places I might never have visited. The length of time spent on a project like the ones in Uganda & Thailand gave me a chance to really expierience the culture & get to know the people. I live in Austin & have worked in far-flung places, but I had very little connection with others following our path before I joined the SDSA. It was so nice to find a communication base with peers working together to create community & support. I love seeing communiques from SDSA in my inbox and wish I could attend in-person events. One of these days...
