I’ve relocated to Los Angeles!

LA Studio

LA Studio

I pulled up stakes from New York in July after 27 amazing years in that great city.  I’ll miss my many friends, but thankfully a few have caught the LA bug as well and I have the good fortune of meeting up with them in our respective sunglasses for pints in this amazing place. I’m very excited to be here, and really look forward to this next phase of my life and career.  Edie and I are living a short walk from the front gates of Paramount Pictures in a great little house with a detached converted garage in which I’ve set up my studio, with a bathroom and kitchen at hand and a nice pool outside the sliding glass doors for the occasional work-break dip.  A perfect space for focusing.
