Relentlessly positive, because I believe what one puts out, one gets back.

College: A School In West Virginia

Degrees: Literature and Philosophy

Masters: A School In New York City....for filmmaking.

Irony: Now I work in sales and land development. Every now and then I make a film.

Marital Status: Once-Divorced, now happily married. One child from first marriage, three children with my second wife.

Further comments: I love being a dad, a husband, a brother, and a son.
I love horse racing, baseball, chess, and the West Virginia Mountaineers.

Books: October Light by John Gardner, The Wild Palms by William Faulkner, Absalom! Absalom! by William Faulkner, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, The Old Life by Donald Hall, Bodies in Motion and at Rest by Thomas Lynch, Radios by Jerome Stern, Small Wonders by Barbara Kingsolver, For The Time Being by Annie Dillard, Blood Horses by John Jeremiah Sullivan, Cathedrals of Kudzu by Hal Crowther, Gather At The River by Hal Crowther

Music: The Beatles, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Howlin' Wolf, Lyle Lovett, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, 311, Crowded House, Neil Finn, Hall and Oates, Paul Simon, Gomez, Sam Phillips, Bodeans, Prince, Tears For Fears, Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and Sonny Boy Williamson II.

Movies: Kieslowski's Three Colors Trilogy, Rear Window, Vertigo, Unforgiven, Casablanca, Chinatown, How Green Was My Valley, The Quiet Man, Major League, Trading Places, A Fish Called Wanda, City Lights, Moonstruck, Pleasantville, A River Runs Through It, Let It Ride, Goin' South, Groundhog Day, Seabiscuit, The Big Sleep.

Last Meal Request: Skinless chicken thighs in my soon-to-be famous Buffalo sauce, followed by a burger. Oh, and a boatload of beer.

Favorite Sports Moments Attended: Bob Walk's complete game win in the 1992 NLCS. WVU over Miami in 1993. WVU over Pitt and Virginia Tech every single time it happened since 1990. WVU over Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. Every single time I have spent a day at the races at Keeneland.

Credos: Do what's right. Apologize when you're wrong. Eat less, do more. Listen. Never leave a waiter or waitress less than three dollars. And, in a phrase borrowed from Paul Auster: "To say, what else matters?" ..
