My Influences


Recognize this dude? Well, this is (a young version of) Gene Roddenberry. He is best known as the producer, director, and creator and his phenomenal work in assembling the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation, which played heavily in my development. This one hour a week opened my eyes to concepts far beyond me. Only watching them anew am I forming this link.  So many REAL cultural things are portrayed in this beautifully crafted show. At some point, i was exposed to to things such as racial tolerance, Anatomy, Shakespeare,  Sir Hawking,  and a troupe of guest actors.  Because it was all delivered via an enjoyable experience,  it sure routed synaptic pathways which activated, for want of a better term, some kind of pleasure response.  Malissa knows better than anyone that you need to approach most things slowly with me. If I begin to feel overloaded with input, I have a tendency to shut down. But as with most things for me, she overlooks my asshole-ish ways.

Reason # 17.648,945 why I love THIS girl!

    Yes, Star Trek had an impact on many generations of viewers. I was around to see them all. But the original cast and series is unbeatable. Love you Andrew.
