Things I Wanna Do, But Don’t Want My Sons To Do… #1

Posted by on August 19th, 2015, under VIDEOTAPE

Posted by on February 5th, 2014, under VIDEOTAPE

I found out we were having our first baby five years ago to this very minute. Rather than tell you about it, why don’t I show you… I was at a staged reading of a friend’s script. We finished up and I felt this urgency from my wife, Avara. It was an energy like I […]
