I was also the publicist, costume props trainee and the behind the scenes material producer for Iron Sky, a sci-fi film about Nazis from the Dark Side of the Moon, and Mr. Fukov from Star Wreck: ...more

“All of old. Nothing else ever. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”
Samuel Beckett, Worstward Ho

“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.”
