Career

Switching majors and finally graduating with a degree in journalism in 1986. He edited The Daily Targum, Rutgers' student newspaper, winning multiple Columbia Scholastic Press Association College Gold Circle Awards.

Clark then worked as a stringer at The Bergen Record and the New Brunswick Home News Tribune before becoming an on-line editor at Dow Jones News Service. He left after two years to accept an editorial position at Genesis Magazine, followed by a five year tenure at Al Goldstein’s Screw magazine.

Clark also edited the fanzine Chrome on Fire, and performed in the band False Virgins, produced by Sonic Youth guitarist Lee Ranaldo. The band released two albums at the turn of the decade. When the lead singer committed suicide, Clark broke up the band and retired from playing music.

He moved to San Francisco in 1995 and was hired for an editorial position at the now-defunct The Spectator. Clark was noticed for flamboyant readings and performance art pieces ght to heavy bondage, piercing, and the spilling of his own blood.

In 1998 he moved to Los Angeles to accept a position directing porn videos for John T. Bone’s Cream Studios. Since then he’s carved out a niche shooting mostly artsy low-budget porno exclusively featuring Asian female talent. His screenplay for Brad Armstrong’s high-budget Euphoria won an AVN Award for Best Screenplay in 2000, and his Asia Noir 2: Rise of the Asianatrix won in 2003 for Best Asian Video.

He has directed features for companies ranging from Extreme Associates to Vivid Video.

In an interview with Luke Ford[2] Clark said:

I graduated from Rutgers with a double major in journalism and art. Once I found out that I couldn't paint or draw, I decided to become a serious journalist. I wrote for two years for the Dow Jones news service in New Jersey, then switched to Genesis in 1988 and wrote for a friend, Michael Banka. He was my college roommate who now edited Genesis. I was bored and looking for something else to write about other than planning commission meetings and human interest stories on missing children, gun shows, etc. From there I went on to Screw.

I lead a flamboyant personal lifestyle that meshes with my work. In New York I was seeing and eventually got engaged to a teenage dominatrix who slashed me with a knife when she was angry. The story hit the tabloids like the New York Post. Their headline read - "Porn Editor Cut Up By Kinky Cutie." It showed my picture. We moved to San Francisco to get out of the news and I was with her until October, 1995.

His most recent film, PURE, for Evil Angel, received multiple AVN nominations, including Best Actor (Keni Styles), Best Actress (Asa Akira), Best Supporting Actor (Jake Malone), Best Couples Sex Scene, Best Music Soundtrack, Best Special Effects, Best Screenplay, Best Director – Feature and Best Video Feature.

He died suddenly on November 28, 2009, reportedly as the result of a pulmonary embolism.
