Carew Papritz Biography


Type: Author

Born: 0


Born in Yosemite National Park, Carew lived the first year of life in a tent cabin; at 5 he appeared on the TV show, Romper Room; at 12 he won his first national writing award; and at 16 he wrote his first novel (which of course, for every “great novelist,” did not get published). Crew’s curiosity has lead him to be a ski patrolman, tour bus driver, river raft guide, and a bartender. Living in Norway, he trained and raced with members of the Norwegian Junior Olympic cross-country ski team. As a freelance journalist, he reported on the war in Lebanon and on the riots in Los Angeles. Carew worked on music videos (Madonna, REM, U2), really low-budget movies, forgettable TV shows, never-seen commercials, and eventually the big league—feature films. He even worked with Marlon Brando and Johnny Depp.
