What brings you to Autograph Live?
I began collecting autographs of the actors from the films of Stanley Kubrick back in 2013. After over four years and ten signatures later, soon to be twelve this spring, I'm interested in sharing my collection with fellow collectors and possibly working with fellow collectors in the hope of adding more signatures to my collection if possible.
Who can we thank for telling you about Autograph Live?
I sought the forum out myself :)

Tell us more about your collection, specific areas of interest, etc.:
I've been collecting the signatures of actors from Stanley's films on the cover of my copy of Taschen's beautiful coffee table book, "The Stanley Kubrick Archives," either by corresponding with agents and publicists to have the book mailed or by meeting actors at convention appearances. The book has traveled out from Texas to either coast and even overseas to England.
The following signatures, in the order in which they were added, include:
1. Adam Baldwin (Animal Mother from "Full Metal Jacket")
2. Ryan O'Neal (Redmond Barry/Barry Lyndon from "Barry Lyndon")
3. James Earl Jones (Lt. Lothar Zogg from "Dr. Strangelove")
4. Malcolm McDowell (Alex from "A Clockwork Orange")
5/6. Lisa and Louise Burns (The Grady Twins from "The Shining")
7. Murray Melvin (Reverend Runt from "Barry Lyndon")
8. Daniel Richter (Moonwatcher from "2001: A Space Odyssey")
9. Matthew Modine (Pvt. Joker from "Full Metal Jacket")
10. Danny Lloyd (Danny Torrance from "The Shining")
This April, I'll be attending the Dallas Fan Expo, where it was recently announced that Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood would make an appearance to celebrate the 50th anniversary of "2001: A Space Odyssey."
What is your level of expertise?
What is your favorite autograph in your collection?
It's a difficult question to answer to be sure. Given that "A Clockwork Orange" is probably my favorite Kubrick film, the opportunity to meet Malcolm McDowell and have him sign the cover in person was wonderful.
Why do you collect?
Because I love the films of Stanley Kubrick. Stanley's sense of artistry, professionalism, craft and discipline inspires me every day of my life in my own creative endeavors. This collection is a celebration of his work and of the actors who populate his films and bring them to life through vivid, captivating performances.
You can ask anyone living or dead for their autograph. Who would it be?
