When he was young, he didn't have a "career" in mind, but he definitely had an area of interest.
Was originally studying theater; directed a play in Boston; a producer recognized as a visual wonder; shot the play as a film.
As he was participating of the direction of this film, he realized his training in directing actors could cross over into film and television.
He went to work at a local Boston TV station; had to give up directing theater but got to direct documentaries instead.
Produced several documentaries, eventually won an Emmy with that station.
Says that when you're facing criticism, you just have to be honest with yourself and honest with others.
He "never did and never will" judge his success by how much money he's made; says success is in the "magic" of communication, being happy.
Says his priority is "me first...me, and whatever good I can give to the rest of my peers"; that might be egotistical but he always wants to be happy.
