I am neither a scholar nor an expert but a wild enthusiast of
Shakespeare's works.  So much so that I intend to devote some part of
the rest of my life to the propagation of some of the ideas in thepoetry
and plays.  I have re-written one of the plays as a modern gangster
movie and would like to present another as a popular TV series.  I am
currently working on a number of short films intended for television
based on the sonnets.  I include the URL not for advertising but for
evidence of my personal dedication to Shakespeare performance in the
21st century.

I am neither a conservative purist nor a deconstructive modernist.  I
love the poetry but abhor snobbish opacity.  To be authentic is
impossible - to be fatuously popular is more so.  Performers of
Shakespeare tread a difficult path through the wild wood otherwise known
as an audience.

Hoping very much for your acquaintance,
