When I was a little guy, I watched the "CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite" every day with my grandmother.
That was the genesis of my career as a broadcaster. I would stand in the mirror in our dining room at home in San Antonio, and imitate Bernard Shaw, Ed Bradley, Roger Mudd, Walter Cronkite. And my grandmother encouraged me, always telling me, "You can do anything you want in life."
Plus, I was nosey!
The youngest of three children, I have always loved reading and writing. (But I can do without math!!!)
Going through San Antonio public schools, I participated in athletics, but also academics. I love chess and played on the Highlands High School chess team. I was also part of the Speech and Drama Competition and the Debate Team.
I grew up singing in groups in San Antonio, mostly gospel music. I have always been active in church and am currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Divinity. We are never too old to stop learning.
I absolutely love what I do for a living. I talk to high school students a lot and tell them that I make a movie everyday. Writing, directing and producing...the huge responsibility is this is not fiction, but rather about people and their lives. These are our neighbors, even if they are strangers. We are all community.
I studied Spanish for five years and speak it fairly well. It's important that we learn other languages. America is the only country where people don't know multiple languages.
I love the LORD, and am not ashamed of that. I try to be sensitive and compassionate in the stories I tell asking myself, "What would Jesus do?"
If I had a motto it would probably be: "It's not what we do for ourselves but what we do for someone else on a daily basis that makes a difference."
What have you done today?
