Hey, I'm Skip!

Nashville, Tennessee

Developed two webseries last year and shot the pilots. Now looking for advertisers for these two show.

One is on Vintage Music Gear; the other is on beer and food parings.

Finishing a feature length documentary funded entirely though crowdfunding called, "Rideout: One Last Summit."

Now I'm writing the scripts to a new webseries about the missing years of Jesus called, "The Of Nazareths: A modern take on the greatest story never told." In this series Joseph, Mary and James, the brother of Jesus, are in family therapy because they do not know how to live with the Son of God. It's a comedy.

At forty years of age I am on a mission to create as much entertainment as I can. I surround myself with creative people to find the best voices, talent and craft in Nashville, TN. 

I am also partnering with a local radio personality on a podcast called, "Same Different's" where two straight white Christian men engage with people in the varying community to better understand what it means to be an ally in their community.
