Biography
Before Age 10.
Childhood sets the stage for many things.  My childhood set the stage for my success in the business of Film & TV when I did two things that became habit.  

#1:  I started 2 businesses (age 4 and age 8).  Both were profitable, both came with hard but good lessons.

#2: I had the privelage of becoming a child actor at 5 and continued into my adulthood.
Double Digits.
My teen years were spent largely pursuing what I thought was my future - Baseball.  

I was a slugger, a long baller to say the least.  My position: Catcher.  I played 80+ games per season by my mid-teens.  And that was the problem.  

In 1998 my arm gave out at the same time that the NY Mets were working with the West Virginia Mountaineers to groom me for the pros. 
My 20's.
The highlights of this decade start with meeting my future wife and marrying her.  We started a family not long after I completed my 3 Undergrads and MBA. 

Somewhere in that busy time I opened a snowplowing business in Western NY,  became a millionarie, and lost everything during the '07-08 market shift.  These lessons were cirital and believe it or not, I treasure them.  
TODAY.
In my 20's my hobby became 360TV, a TV Show we helped start at a local church. Little did I know that video production on a large scale was my future.  Eventually,  we started C47 Film Associates.

A decade after founding C47 Films we have 40+ awards for Film, TV and Advertising work. 

Today I Produce, Direct, & Write brand content for medium to large businesses as well as CONSULT & TEACH video content creation for businesses of all shapes and sizes.
