"In the mid 1990's I worked on a music video with Rebecca Mclean as production manager. She was great to work with and had a beautiful dedication to the job. Since then we have both worked on my art projects together, and she not only can second guess me she can add creative insight. I wish that Rebecca was permanently attached to me like a limb.
