He’s been buddies with actor Bill Paxton ever since they met while growing up in Fort Worth, he’s worked on Hollywood films in various capacities for more than 20 years, and he’s still riding high on Carried Away, his directorial debut which just happened to win the Best Narrative Feature award at the Glen Rose Neo-Relix Film Festival last weekend.

Photography and art are his other passions, and a collection of his work (along with the fascinating street images of photographer Richard Cohen) will be on exhibit beginning Sept. 11 at Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 1300 Gendy St.
