About Me Film. Never a major player, I first worked for Guy Lombardo at Jones Beach Marine Theater as a stage hand for a few years eventually moving on to work in the Film Industry.

One of my favorite anecdotes from My Jones Beach days involves "meeting" Louis Armstrong when he joined me at a row of two urinals one evening backstage at Jones Beach Marine Theater...saying, "how ya doin kid?" "Pretty good" was my only reply and Its a short kind of silly anecdote and perhaps not that unique, because even Luis had to pee and many over his life time must have found themselves in the same position, but while for Satchmo it was just another day and another leak...for me it was the day I "met" a legend.

I have driven a taxi, been served as what I used to call "social coordinator" in numerous bars and clubs around Manhattan, and finally brought that experience to a long stint at an after hours bar. (that last one aged me a bit.)

I was a Gardener to the stars, (once worked in Paul Newman's garden one day and the next day on the set one of his movies "The Glass Menagerie"), and I'm a computer tech. I've driven art around the country in trucks, a bus full of tourists through Times Square. Of course I worked in Film for a quarter century doing everything from Props, Electric, Grip work, and special effects, with every day being a new adventure.

I also did lighting for local News with all the networks when "news" was filmed and driven back to stations to be developed by couriers on Motorcycle, hopefully in time for the evening news. Much has changed and I now have some insight into how my grandfather felt by the time the 1970s came along. The clock keeps on ticking and I walk more and run less these days, while time goes ever faster. I had outlived all but one of my high school pals by the time I had reached 25. . Every day has always been and continues to be a gift... as I contemplate 2015.

Wild Fact About Me I have worked making movies in and around Manhattan most of my working life.
My Philosophy Sit long enough by the river and you will see your enemies float by.
What Gives Me Hope The Republicans loosing seats, Obama's Win, Gore's movie, and its success. All of you out there who are not mind numbingly dumb and greedy and all about shopping, who got their hair cut and why, and filled with fear of your government because its guilty of governing while black and Democrat. Votes should have a paper trail in every state.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Lets change a number of no brainer follow the money situations, and the back scratching palm greasing deals our government makes which are totally against the majority of peoples interests...bought and paid for by those already filthy rich.

The status Quo is rotten at the core. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. That quote speaks to watching or own government and its inherent greed for money and power. That means standing up when OUR GOVERNMENT over steps. Major reform is in order, after these years of overt republican and sometime Dem...corporate collusion and its efforts to bring rule by the people to an end, replacing it with corporate government, by the dollar and for the dollar. We had a president who has called our Constitution a god damned piece of paper. Look it up! A piece of paper I would die for, he spoke of with contempt. The true flag of our country, is that piece of paper IMHO, And our ex President cursed it. Bush was the most anti American man to ever hold the office. I am proud to have worked hard to help elect President Obama with the added benefit of not having Palin, a heartbeat from the presidency.
What/who changed my life and why Apocalypse Now, Jonathan Livingston Seagull,Maryanne Williamson, My family. Grandpa, My first girlfriend, all the woman\teachers in between, and Laura.
