Star Wars (released in 1977, no roman numerals, no subtitle) turned me into a movie buff at age thirteen. That’s when I started watching movies over and over and over again. I daydreamed of making movies, but when I started selling short stories, my Hollywood dreams faded. Over the years I wrote some scripts, but they went unsold or unfinished.

My screenplay dabbling paid off when I stumbled into working on Afterglow StudiosSpace Next, a documentary on the journey of humans to space and the future of the space program. Then came Touch the Stars, a history of NASA’s exploration of the solar system. Eventually, COVID-19 threw a wrench into theater attendance, so I’m not sure when I might return to screenwriting. But I earned an IMDb page, which is fun for a movie buff.

This is from when Touch the Stars played at the Hong Kong Science Museum.

The journey has just begun!
