He wrote, “Hello all, This is a note of reflection and one of immense excitement! I turn 50 today (a number that seemed like a distant nightmare), while I know it’s kind of a mid-point of my life but I can’t help my wannabe millennial self from existing. Some call it a mid-life crisis, I proudly call it just ‘living life without any apologies’. I have worked in the movie industry for 27 years and I’m blessed to have had the best experience ever!!! Telling stories, creating content, nurturing talent and watching the finest artists perform in front of my privileged eyes…these years are like being  in a massive dream that made all the sleeplessness seem worthwhile! I am grateful for the brickats, the bouquets, the praising souls, the public trolls…All of IT!!! It’s been a huge part of my learning curve and self growth…”
