More and more people should look at this and understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular given that you surely have the gift.

    Some really excellent information, Gladiolus I noticed this. “I have hardly ever known a mathematician who was capable of reasoning.” by Plato.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
