Born: 20 January 1946, Missoula, Montana

Lynch was the son of a US Forest Service biologist, the family moved five times (Sand Point, Idaho; Spokane, Washington; Durham, North Carolina, and Boise, Idaho) before Lynch attended high school at Alexandria, Virginia. He adjusted well to the frequent moves and was active in the Boy Scouts. As an Eagle Scout he was an usher at JFK's inauguration, which was on his fifteenth birthday. He spent a year at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Boston, went to Europe in hopes of studying with an expressionist at Salzburg who turned out not to be available for teaching, then the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts to study painting, but got sidetracked by filmmaking. He moved to Los Angeles and the AFI Conservatory where he first came to public attention with the cult horror film Eraserhead. This was soon followed by Elephant Man, Dune, (appreciated by Frank Herbert, author of the book, the Quotemaster, and maybe a dozen others) and the popular TV murder mystery Twin Peaks. In addition to his film and television work he has continued to paint, has been involved in a number of musical projects, and has been an advocate for Transcendental Meditation.
