This entire series is a love letter to the writers, actors and to David Gordon Green, Joe Gangemi, Gregory Jacobs, and Hal Hartley as a production team. They created a modern day Portrait of the Artist As A Young Man and I will analyze David Meyer’s Hero’s Journey within the framework of this adventure laid out by Professor Joseph Campbell in his masterpiece The Hero With A Thousand Faces.

CLICK THE IMAGE BELOW to learn about the book I’m writing about Twin Peaks. Don’t tell me you haven’t watched Twin Peaks yet! You have no excuse.

When Twin Peaks returned in 2017, the world wasn’t ready for what happened. It still isn’t. This 18 hour film, broken into episodes of a Showtime drama, is the most complex piece of art ever put on your screen. I am going to help you break it down and understand this masterpiece from one point of view that will change the way you watch the entire three seasons and the film Fire Walk With Me.

Also, when I publish this book, I’m giving all of my proceeds away to The David Lynch Foundation, which teaches Military Veterans suffering PTSD, those recovering from abuse, addiction, and the economically disenfranchised to practice Transcendental Meditation, a practice I adopted last year and which has changed my life positively in every conceivable way! Help me give back by supporting this project. FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM for info on when this book can be in your hands!

My Music

I love to make music that sounds good to my ears. I have been playing guitar and singing to myself for nearly 20 years and I amuse myself with this hobby. I might amuse you too.
