Background Information

I was raised on a 66 acre New England estate in the "Ocean State" of Rhode Island. No doubt my summer spent in Cape Cod or back on the farm in western Rhode Island  influenced me with the love of the great outdoors. I spent much of my time on Cape Cod and the beaches of Rhode Island in my younger years, growing in love with the oceans, which is a theme in much of my work as a screen writer and write and producer/director.

Im influenced by my childhood favorites of adventure. From Jack London's "Call of The Wild:" ( my favorite) to Mark Twains "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", these were epic tales of American adventure. My films also often deal with these subjects.

Im a major follower of Joseph Cambells myth theory and i love his works on the archtype of the  hero.

Other influences in literature include the great early New England writers after the American Revolution including Ralph Waldo Emerson and Edgar Allen Poe.

Other influences include my brother Kevin  who loves adventure, poetry and folk lore( he is an award winning poet winning awards from the Scottish International Poet's Society) and grandfather Richard Crosscup and Step Grandmother Gwendolyn Bennett Crosscup, a highly acclaimed writer from the Harlem Renaissance. I have read their writings. My European mother was also a journlist and had the greatest influence on me as a writer taking me through New England to research sites  for feature writing for an old New England regional newspaper ( The Observer) . We would trek with her photographer to sites such as the Great Swamp, site of the Indian war with King Philip and other sites of cultures that vanished in the early settlement. This inspired me the greatest to write and direct and produce cinema.

But before anything can be brought to life on the screen as a director and producer, even producing reality TV, or scripted screen plays or books, my works all originate as literature.

My current consumtion is studying Hebrew literature, one of the oldest in the world of which the Hebrew Bible has presented our culture with some of the greatest stories ever told. And I am finishing up a screen play dealing with a group of Hippies who were stranded on an island in the Pacific in the 1970's.
