WELCOME


One of my favorite spots in Los Angeles is Skull Rock. It's in the Santa Monica Mountains. It's quiet. You can look over the city and the ocean at the same time. It takes effort to get there. It gives you perspective. This picture was taken recently while we were up there filming our documentary.

ABOUT

I've made my living generating media content. I've worked primarily in broadcast television and national radio - hosting, producing, writing, and directing. I've been fortunate enough to do it with NBC, MTV, HGTV, iHeart Media, Warner Brothers, and more. I'm not saying it's Shakespeare but I love my work. You can see for yourself on my "TV" and "RADIO" pages.

When you don't see me on TV or hear me on the radio, I do a ton of work behind the scenes - often for private clients. Which I enjoy more than I would have ever imagined.

I also host all types of "live" events across the country.
I'm surprised how often people remember specific moments from MTV or Cash In The Attic. My journalist side loves to interview people.

On my travels I often get asked: "where have you been"?

Here's the thing - I've had 2 colossal health events in my life. Amazingly, I've survived both. What's the best way to explain this? Well, of the many axioms I try to live by, one is: When God gives you lemons - make lemonade.

Fortunately I like lemonade, so we are filming a documentary about making lemonade (so to speak). You can see exactly what I am talking about here: THRYVOR.com.

INTERESTS

My family - easily my favorite thing in the world.

Analyzing the results of double blind randomized placebo-controlled trials of breakthrough immunotherapy drugs while listening to Led Zeppelin.

Researching optimized human longevity. Something I've been doing for 4 years - and documenting every step of my own survival.

Nature / Science / Theology / Music / Comedy / Books / Movies / TV / History /
Philosophy / Super Hero Comics / Nutrition / Fitness / Philosophy /and People.

Here's the thing about people. There is a quote attributed to Albert Einstein "Information is not knowledge, EXPERIENCE is knowledge". Point being, unless you are personally experiencing the subject you are exploring - the only source of knowledge on "said subject" are the people who have truly experienced it. Think: Birth, Love, Death.

To quote Jimi Hendrix "Are You Experienced"?

Jimi happens to be the second photo on the top right. Which leads me to "all" the photos on this page. When I was putting this page together I got a lot of compliments on the picture selection. One question kept popping up - is there a common denominator? Yes. All of these people are Americans.


CURRENTLY READING

Like many people, I'm always reading a few books at once.

Another book entered my rotation - The Death Of Expertise: The Campaign Against Established Knowledge and Why It Matters by Tom Nichols. My Dad recommended it to me. I just started reading it but I can safely say if the premise continues - the author is speaking my language. Here's a synopsis from goodreads:

"The rise of the internet and other technology has made information more easily-accessible than ever before. While this has had the positive effect of equalizing access to knowledge, it also has lowered the bar on what depth of knowledge is required to consider oneself an "expert." A cult of anti-expertise sentiment has coincided with anti-intellectualism, resulting in massively viral yet poorly informed debates".

True.


QUOTES ON MY MIND

"We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us". - JOSEPH CAMPBELL

"And how is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive"?
- HOMER SIMPSON

"I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing,
and that is that I know nothing." - SOCRATES

CLOSING THOUGHTS

Everyday I try to learn something new, something useful. Ideally, something that can help other people. If I can share that knowledge, in an enterating way - all the better. Amen.

With that in mind - Do you want to go for a hike to Skull Rock?
