Links to Me

I have lived a fascinating and diverse life. My stratified career has taken me to such exotic places as India, the North Pole, Turkey, Greece, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines. I grew up on the South Side of Chicago. As a young man I disappeared for weeks at a time, hitchhiking across the United States, Mexico or Canada. I worked my way through two high schools and five universities as a gas station attendant, elevator operator, hotel desk clerk, bridge painter, steelworker, canoe guide, newspaper editor, disc jockey, lumberjack, stage actor, and singer. Moving to Hollywood in the mid-eighties, I starred in, directed or produced independent feature films as well as appearing on episodic television. My last few years in Hollywood, I worked in the studio system at Walt Disney Studios and CBS Television. I returned to Colorado in 1999, worked for an architect, taught high school and learned all facets of the car business. I am presently a recruiter for a truck driving academy. I published three novels recently: The Five Pearls, Chasing God's River and The Glass Fence. I still act and sing on occasion.
