My short bio
I was born in Minnesota, although I have spent most of my life in TX and CA. Despite those facts, I feel that NM has always been home, whether I was aware of it or not. Now that I am aware and living here in NM, I have done nothing but gain knowledge and encounter amazing people that have influenced my life tremendously. I originally came out here to help Nick out with the Green Globe Festival. Within 12 hours of being here, I found myself on set of an independent film by the name of 'Jordan'. It seemed like home for me from the word go! Everyone on set was very responsive to teaching me all that they could about the industry. After 12 years as a chef all around TX, VA and a few other random destinations, I never thought that I would be starting a new career path. I volunteered an entire month to 'Jordan' not knowing what the next step might be. Through hard work and dedication I was able to impress the right people and land a few paying jobs in the casting department with Angelique Midthunder and Jill Dupont. Unsure of how to close these floodgates of opportunities, I managed to work on films through the end of January. Everything from Accounting PA, Office PA, 2nd 2nd AD, Casting Associate and even a little producing, I cannot complain one bit about where my career has taken me thus far or where it is headed in the near future. I can also not disregard all of the great people/filmmakers of NM that have welcomed me with open arms and given me the chance to prove myself here in this great state.
Check out the trailer for one of the films that I was involved with as Casting Associate and 2nd 2nd Asst Director. More to come soon....

"Wastewater" is in the Can

June 7, 2009

~mel writes.....

It was at the very end of the 2-day shoot for "Wastewater" that I had a real feeling, and it was this: I have a hard drive full of great stuff.

All through the long hours on set, squinting at monitors and making decision after decision, I would stop and ask myself, How does it feel to be directing your first short movie? I never got a "movie-poster" answer.

The best… Continue

Please help support a local film project that I am currently working on!!!

I am currently working on a project with some great local filmmakers. We worked on the movie Jordan together last summer and now we are joining forces again to help produce this project. Please read the following brochure and contact me if you have any further questions in regards to the project. We are shooting April 4-5 and are looking primarily for food donors that can help ease the burden of feeding a volunteer crew of 20 people. Thanks to all who have supported us thus far and I look… Continue

Josh! Met you in Las Vegas on the set-gave you a copy of my CD "within" let me know if you've had a chance to hear it. What a magical place to be in cant wait to go back there - I refuse to tell people about it so it will remain sacred. Love and light
