My sister, Virginia, and Joey. You might remember Virg as the Caged Animal Masturbator from 'Clerks'. I remember her from when she put me back in my crib after I got out one morning to play with one of those Fisher Price rolling phones. She was actually the first person that introduced me to the notion of writing: when I was around five or six, she was writing a fiction book about an adventure her and her friends never had called 'The Secret Door'. I was completely taken with the idea that anyone who wasn't a writer for a living (or an adult for that matter) would undertake such an effort. Years later, when I told her I wanted to be a filmmaker, her advice was very simply "Be a filmmaker - approach everything in life as if you are already a filmmaker. Just... be a filmmaker." It sounded stupid. It wasn't. (62K JPG)
