Spear and in California, Guantanamo Bay (Gitmo), Cuba, Norfolk and in the frozen waters of the north Atlantic. I was Co-captain of the Atlantic Fleet Championship soccer team and received an Honorable Discharge after seven years total service.
moved to New York City, worked as an actor and writer, and then attended film school at NYU, from which I received a Professional Certification. I then crewed on dozens of studio and independent films, and eventually launched Mactavish Pictures. Here’s a filmography.
