During my High School years, I made a zany short film called Cai Chi, a fight film short called Annihilation Celebration and a crazy play called Captain Robert and the Search for Magni-tron Transmitters.

After High School I saw an infomercial on TV selling a course on how to be a big dog real estate investor. I thought that sounded pretty good. Listening to the whole course about fried my brain, but I managed to do what it taught and bought a house. Flying by the seat of my pants I managed to remodel the home, got my real estate license and sold it as the listing Realtor. (More on that experience here.) Turns out it wasn’t as simple as I thought. I had spent too much fixing up the house and lost money. I kept going with the Realtor gig off and on for a while and eventually discovered I just wasn’t in to it.

As I continued down the road of life, I worked a variety of jobs that covered anything from construction to customer phone support to installing satellite dishes to newspaper delivery. (To this day, I can be driving around with my wife in almost any part of Tulsa and point out a place I once worked.) I also moved into “The Cheyenne Apartment” – sure it leaked and I had to build my own shower, but at a cost of $150 per month and by working a day and night job, it afforded me the ability to fund and create two more films; The Businessmen of Bemington daycare and another called The Turtleneck Club. A couple Cheyenne Apartment fun facts: One time it got so cold the toilet water froze, I had dedicated buckets that I set out to catch the leaks inside when it rained, When one of my friends would visit me he legitimately acted like he was Indiana Jones crossing the wooden bridge from the Temple of Doom every time he had to go up or down the stairs.
