I’m a proud US Army veteran.
In 1981 I started my military career in the Army Reserves and retired from active duty in 2012 (there was a six-year break in there before the Army INVITED me to go to Iraq). My military service led me to living in five states and I set my foot down in 15 countries.
After my Army life was over, I enrolled in The Art Institute of Charlotte majoring in Digital Filmmaking. There I became one of six national finalists in the Sprite Film competition. While I didn’t win, I had a great time making the film and traveled to CinemaCon in Las Vegas, NV. There all the finalist films were shown in a massive theater in front of A-list actors and movie and entertainment executives. What a rush! Upon finishing film school, I received an award of Outstanding Portfolio (Video) in my graduating class.
Upon finishing film school, I founded Valor Video Productions. The company produced promotional videos for many small businesses, non-profits and individuals. The company operated from 2016 to 2019.
Just one more thing… ever since I saw a kid’s TV show called Fireball XL-5 as a very young child, I’ve always wanted to be a rocket man.

FRESH – A SPRITE FILM

How dreams start… Fireball XL5 was a British science fiction children’s television show. Airing in 1962, the main characters were electronic puppets who rocketed into space . It ignited a desire in a young child’s heart to fly across the universe.
