January 2016 update

In the past year my ex-wife went from being a stay at home mom, who had a life-long dream of being a singer, actress or filmmaker… to finally earning a living on Youtube. This directly affects me, because my two sons Rowan and Ivan are the stars of her videos. It is pretty amazing how hundreds of little girls have a crush on my son Rowan, people recognize him when they go around town. They have the Elf on The Shelf videos and you can find them on Youtube by searching “Danica” or “Rowan.” Or, here is a direct link to their page: My sons and Danica’s Youtube Channel!

In the past year I was a guest with my two sons at a decent sized horror convention that my good friend Derek Young put on.Guests in attendance were Kane Hodder (Jason in many of the Friday the 13th movies), Mark Torgl (the original Melvin who got turned into The Toxic Avenger) and many other celebrities and also filmmaker friends I know from around Virginia.

Also, my sons got even better at art! Here is some new art my sons created recently:

While on the subject of art, some time in the past year I got the opportunity to paint my first painting since I was a teenager! Check out the video:
