contemplating cultural hiccups with directors like Clint Eastwood, this<br />
former midwesterner has spoken with everyone from such rockers as<br />
the Rolling Stones and Pearl Jam, to writers like Hubert Selby and Ken<br />
Kesey, to actors such as Viggo Mortensen and Meryl Streep.<br />
He regularly contributes to such outlets as popentertainment.com, FilmFestivalToday.com, jerusalemblueprint.com, irishexaminaerusa.com, blackfilm.com and fearsmag.com and organizes screenings, panels, workshops on self-empowerment for filmmakers and writers.<br />
