I was very blessed to grow up in a large family where creativity played a big role.  But no one was more creative than my brother, Dave...

Dave pretty much came out of the womb holding a paintbrush and canvas.  His childhood bedroom was more of an art studio than anything else.  He would spend hours upon hours creating everything from fantastical drawings to my spaceman Holloween costume with blinking lights to a hoovercraft he bult when he was fifteen that actually ran on land and water.  His natural abilities, his attention to detail, his tasteful eye and his drive made everyone realize Dave was something special.

Today, Dave is a world renowned painter.  But, he is more than a painter. He is a creator of imaginary worlds.  From the costumes, the props, the setting, everything...

"I've gotten a lot of flack from the gay community about casting straight actors in gay roles, but I've also cast gay actors in straight roles and I'll bet you didn't know that, but I did. I don't discriminate against straight or gay people in casting; I'm open to good acting. Let's take Kirk Geiger, who played Ty in the Sordid Lives movie. The day he auditioned for me, he was very gay. I didn't feel it was my right to ask if he was gay or straight, but I cast the best actor in the role. You know what I say to people who criticize me for that? I say, "Fuck you." In Yellow, I happen to have a straight boy playing a straight boy and a gay boy playing a gay boy, but they were the best actors for the roles."
