It all started in a take out restaraunt in Fresno, California. Well, not exactly.

Craig's storytelling career began even before he had learned to write. As a child, he would steal his father's tape recorder and make different voices for each character recording tales about strange planets or scary creatures. His favorite story openings at that time were, "Once upon a junk yard heap..." or "It was a dark and stormy night."

Craig still favors a Hitchcockian thriller over a broad teen comedy, but believes that in any story the best hero is the one that either seeks love or gives love. At heart he's a big, mushy romantic.

Before jumping into the entertainment industry, Craig was the president of a successful consulting firm. His clients ranged from KCET, DELUXE LABS, Nortel Networks, Infonet, ITC and the New Getty Center. However, it was the emerging studio DREAMWORKS SKG that changed Craig's direction.
While under contract at DREAMWORKS, Craig wrote, animated, directed and produced THE FISH a 35mm film screened at the Dreamworks Employee and SlamDunk Film Festivals.

Craig wrote, directed and produced LITTLE INDISCRETIONS which stars Diane Farr (Numb3rs) and David Fabrizio (Superman Returns). This dark comedy was an official selection to the IFP's New York Film Market and Cinequest before going into worldwide distribution.
