Why Journeyman Film Company?
I have spent over 20 years in the big corporate world and it was finally time to make a change. Journeyman Film Company was the right fit for me with it being a young, vibrant Company with lots of action going on and a place to help build something interesting. And to be able to tap into my creative side.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?
I take each day as it comes and enjoy it to the max. While having plans for the day is great, when something else comes up that wasn’t part of the plan, that’s fine too. I like to have lots of variety to my day and embrace change as a positive thing that I can learn something from not something that is there as a stumbling block. The more I can get out of the day and enjoy it with others… that’s a great day!

How do you spend your spare time?
When I’m not busy with work or family commitments, I volunteer with the youth in our local church and community groups. Empowering the youth to be leaders and showing them they can have a positive influence in others lives, is my passion.

What has been your greatest accomplishment?
My kids. Seeing them embrace life; going after what they want and not letting anything stand in their way of reaching their goals. Guess you could say, “they are a chip off the ol’ block!”

What is your current work challenge?
Having all the answers to everyone’s questions…still working on that one.
