My Native AdVantage

What are your aspirations? (Personal and Business):

I love making theater, and have my whole life. I want to continue to make great work and astonish audiences.

Biggest Success?:

Having a great marriage for closing in on thirty years, and three wonderful together daughters is no small feat.

Most Challenging Moment?:

I had to fess up to shooting out a guy’s window of his car, that was pretty embarrassing; I was only aiming for his light. So maybe surviving adolescence. 


Discretion is the better part of honor

Favorite People/Role Models?:

Apart from my friends and my family- who are all cool as hell- a lot of people impress me-especially showmen like Orson Welles, whose imagination spanned mediums and reinvented them, or Preston Sturges who dictated and produced seven movies in four years, and they’re all brilliant. Ingmar Bergman and Tadeuz Kantor’s theater work still haunts me.  I’m always a sucker for a good writer.
