"...the Aral Sea has been steadily shrinking since the 1960s after the rivers that fed it were diverted by Soviet irrigation projects." Don't you even read your own links?

My Grandfather used to say any man who hit a woman was a bum. I’d add to that any man who didn’t treat a woman with utmost respect and absolute equality is also a bum. #HeForShe

Introduction
I'm an experienced film editor and VFX artist.  I've played a key role in the post production & VFX production on feature films such as the Star Wars prequels, Star Wars Original Trilogy re-releases and films such as: Avengers, Rango and the Pirates of the Caribbean films. I’ve contributed editing, visual effects and motion graphics to many types of video and film productions.  I helped create the workflows for the conform and mastering for the Star Wars: The Clone Wars & Detours animated series. I served as online editor for the The Clone Wars animated feature film.

I'm also an active singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist and am currently performing with two musical acts.  Bonstone is an original band with long time collaborators Tom Young and Brian Jackson.  We play real music with heart and soul in a pop-rock, Americana, pop-punkish style.  My other band, The B-Side '70s is a full-fledged '70s era arena hard rock tribute band.  We play cover tunes of the great rockers of the '70s:  Ted Nugent, UFO, Thin Lizzy & Led Zeppelin to name a few.
Bragging rights
I've worked my way up by persevering and have so many great friends that have helped me along the way. I'm perpetually optimistic through thick and thin and it's paid off well so far.
