I've been telling stories and entertaining since 1982. First with my songs, then on stage; performing and directing more than 20 live productions. By 1991, I began writing while Technical Directing the Lake Placid Center for the Arts and wrote Four Murder Mysteries and a Full Length Musical. I recently released a book of short adventures on KINDLE: One Baby Boomer's Journey.
I have written 20 songs including the Empire State Winter Games new anthem and have won two Grand Prizes in Nashville's Paramount Song songwriting Competition.
I have worked on many TV and Film productions. In 2015 as a Location Production Manager for a Feature shot in Costa Rica and recently appointed as a Film Festival Judge at the BERLIN International Cinefest, The Lake Placid Film Festival and the NYC Independent Film Festivals.
Besides my 12 award winning Screenplays, I have four more in the works.
