1The real magic is in making the intangible idea, the creative impulse manifest and live in our reality.
2You can't please everyone but I've always felt you cannot ultimately lose if you give everything you try 110%. You'll always learn something useful, even from a failure that can be applied to the next challenge or project. Life is a learning process and I'm very proud of the work I've done and the people I've worked with.
3About "The Pilgrim": "[It] is something I've been working on for a long time and I'm really happy Mike [Grell] and I can work together again on this project. It's a dark psychic thriller based on historical events and characters. It's based on a legendary occult and scientific theory about The Zero Point Field and contact with extra-dimensional intelligences, not all of whom have humanity's best interests at heart. We also delve into the occult history of the Nazi "Bell" and anti-gravity propulsion systems and mind control."
