Today’s Fireballer… My Wife Kathie


It’s time for some gratitude…

Every year around this time, I look for ways to give. Not because I have to, but because it’s the right thing to do. I would not be where I am without great people around me. People that put up with my shenanigans. And since I’m a pretty big personality in the energy sense of the word, it takes a lot for those around me to have patience. I’m always on the go…

But there’s one person that stays with me always. Puts up with everything, every day. Ideas, books, filming, cooking, cleaning, gardening, traveling, working out, driving and the list keeps going. And that person that I love the most is my wife, Kathie.

A true force in her own right, she’s a Malibuite through and through, having been here over 30 years and being a creative powerhouse. Her costumes have graced movies, TV Shows, Game Networks and hundreds of commercials. But her support of FT has been, and continues to be, a gift from the infinite. She rallies her spirit when we film, directs me when I shoot cars to give them a warm glow, critiques my drawings and concepts with a graceful eye to make them the best they can be and ensures that I stay fit and healthy always. Wow.

We were married in 1996 and she jokingly said she’d be surprised if it lasted 3 years. She has more patience than she knows. And she’s Today’s Fireballer… My sweetie.
