12.26.09 - Happy Holidays
I thank all my family and freinds who have supported me through the past couple of years of living and grinding out the life i learned to love in LA. I could not have done it without you.
This year by far has been the best year for me. I got a chance to work on a major feautre film that was released during the summer (Terminator Salvation) and got screen credit for. Followed by several short commercial gigs. This was also the year that I found creative inspiration for my short film which I began writing/producing in October. More details about this coming sooon. The upcoming year poses some interesting challenges. As always there is this uncertain knowledge of how things will work out, but the belief in the process of doing good work that takes us to get there will truly make 2010 another remarkable year. Godbless and stayed tuned for more news in 2010.
