My Various Alternate Lives

Did you know in addition to making Indie Films I sell State Farm Insurance?

I didn't.  But he does look a bit like me, doesn't he?
Sometimes I train sheep dogs too (but only in disguise):
The first time I went on Google I admit I googled myself.  The odd thing was I found a "Ted Hope" who was doing exactly what I was going to do before I went to film school: building sustainable agricultural communities and small scale economies in developing lands.  Maybe he will take me on as an apprentice...  or the sheep herder will.  Just don't make me sell insurance please.  Although I have to say any job looks good these days.
