About Me

For most of my life I was a struggling actor. I appeared on such shows as Mash, WKRP in Cincinnati, and General Hospital. For a short time, I even taught an acting workshop. Back in the mid-seventies I was a recent graduate of the very prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts where I was part of the first graduating class in Los Angeles.
Over the years I wrote many treatments for the various popular shows of the day. I even wrote a few original ideas for TV. But never sold any of them. After volunteering for a unique project to teach drama to inmates of the federal prison at Lompoc, I wrote the first version of INSIDE OUT in 1983.It was to be my "Rocky." But producers of the day where not interested in a story that truthfully depicted prison violence. I turned it into a published novel in 2015, and just finished the rewrite. Now 66 I live in No California.

Additional Information

Waiting for that big break I had many survival jobs typical of the actors of the '70s and '80s. But sales seemed to offer the only possible way to make a living and contrary to popular belief, I discovered that a salesperson is made not born. In fact, commissioned sales can be almost as frustrating as breaking into show business. I am currently working out of my home, on commission, for a start up app company. I have a beautiful daughter from my first wife. I lost my second to cancer in 2012, and I am a prostate cancer survivor.
