From early youth, Tennyson busied himself with a future in space exploration... until his first real exposure to the sciences, when Master Stead's thorough distaste for mathematics interrupted his otherwise perfect plan to become the first grumpy artist to isolate himself on Mars. Undaunted, he began the long and arduous process of redirecting his academic attentions. Passing through careers in both theater and the neurosciences, Tennyson finally found his way into the lurid arms of the film industry. Today, Tennyson E. Stead writes, directs, and develops independent feature films and transmedia endeavors.
