Ted is a hard working AV geek residing in Monterey, CA after finishing his degree in film production and writing. He studied film for all four years of college, and hopes to pursue a career in writing for film or television. Most of his favorite films were made by the great indie writer/directors of the modern age such as Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Richard Linklater and PT Anderson. While film is his field of expertise, Ted's main passion is music; playing, listening and researching. Ted has been an avid guitar player for over fifteen years, being just a second grader with a copy of Dookie upon his start. Playing music has led him to explore the vast world of sound, spanning various genres such as rock, hip-hop, classical, jazz, alternative, electronic, experimental, metal, and whatever other genres you can think of that don't include Rascal Flats or Kenny Chesney. Other than media saturation of the audio and video type, Ted enjoys reading (anything by Chuck Klosterman or Hunter S. Thompson), hiking (Big Sur is merely a minute up the road), going to shows (duh), traveling all over, skateboarding, swimming in the ocean, drinking on the beach and shredding life to the fullest extent.
