"Live an adventurous life." - David Greathouse
It’s Oscars week! The pinnacle of the year in film. We are so excited to bring you today’s guest, the multi-talented film producer, David Greathouse. Dave and his wife also happen to be some of our closest friends. We’ve shared lots in the world of entertainment and endured agonizing training together for endurance events.
The timing of this conversation is special because Dave was the executive producer for multi-Oscar award-winning film, “Hacksaw Ridge”, which was directed by Mel Gibson. In the world of entertainment, there are a lot of folks known for their larger than life presence and Dave possesses a unique mix of humility, wisdom, and insight while having a larger than life imagination. He’s worked with some of the very best in Hollywood. He got his start at Disney and then learned under the mentorship of Scott Rudin. He’s worked with legend Robert Benton and special effects innovator Sam Winston. He’s most recently worked with Kevin Smith and Mel Gibson. His upcoming film “Icebox”, a powerful and moving movie centered on immigration should be on your radar.
Dave is like a Swiss Army knife meets savvy finance exec meets strong and accomplished endurance athlete. He’s completed three full Ironman triathlons, multiple Tahoe Death Rides, and does things like ride his bike from San Francisco to Santa Barbara for the heck of it. He favors the journey and process over the destination in all that he does.
Sit back and enjoy these stories, simple joys, and adventures with Dave…and how it all began with Star Wars in a small town in Texas.
DAVE’S WORDS OF WISDOM
“Catching your dream is life well lived. Maybe your dream doesn’t work out, but in the process, you discover you love something else even more.”
“Life is too previous to not spend it doing what you want.”
“Turn off the TV and start hanging out with your friends. Let’s get back to talking to each other.”
“When your world is reduced to simplicity, life gets really rich and colorful.”
“Live an adventurous life.”
“It’s always about the journey and not the destination.”
