Iíve always been interested in hi-tech, science and mathematics. Iíve always had an interest in writing, photography, music, dance... the arts. In the third grade, I had to show my teacher how to thread the schoolís Ampro sound projector. Running a projector became a permanent thing through graduation. I got started in radio in the fifth grade with a wire recorder, turntable and a low power AM transmitter I built myself. I could get a signal out about a mile or so. My friends were impressed. That same year I got my own 8 mm movie camera. All of our previous home movies had been on 16 mm. With my 8 mm, I learned the art of stop-motion animation, cell animation, and matte box special effects. During elementary, junior high and high school, I published, on an uncertain schedule, a rebellious newspaper. There was an old mimeograph at my dadís office. I later used his Kodak Verifax (dye transfer) copy machine.
During collage (The University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee), I was the photographer for the annual and managing editor of the Sewanee Purple (weekly paper). My friend and teacher Andrew Lytle had a great influence on me. I contributed short stories and poetry to the schoolís student literary magazine. A little of it still seems OK.
After Sewanee, I went to Delta State University, Cleveland, Mississippi, and discovered just how sheltered life at Sewanee had been. I also spent time in Nashville at Vanderbilt and Peabody.
