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 involves meeting Louis Armstrong when he joined me at a row of two urinals one evening backstage at Jones Beach saying, "how ya doin kid?" I said...OK Sir, stunned at my predicament. Its a short but unique anecdote. That day Satchmo simply took a leak, while I on the other hand, I met a legend..

I have driven a taxi, been a bouncer in numerous bars and clubs around Manhattan, and finally a long stint running 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, and of course worked in Film doing everything from Props to Electric to Grip work, to special effects. I also did lighting for local News with all the networks when it was filmed and driven back to stations 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 is a gift as I contemplate 2013. I have now for about two years worked as a hands on activities coordinator for a senior center which feeds, teaches entertains and otherwise helps the elderly. It is in its way, no less challenging than the other things I've done and in some ways, the most rewarding. Peace.

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.

    Very offbeat, to say the least, but so creative, imaginative & original: & a real pleasure, for me at least, for the eyes & the spirit! I am hooked on this team! It's just amazing to me what you can stumble upon, quite by accident, when you have a little time to devote to exploring YouTube offerings.

    As the year 2013 is ready to say so long to us and 2014 is about to begin I feel this video will leave us a good message to carry forth into the New Year. Mitakuye Oyasin. We Are One We Are All Related. Carry that in your hearts and set it forth upon the lands and universe. May we all be Human Beings.....Enjoy the music of Brule an award winning and one of the top selling Native American adult/rock music groups.

    Hi, Robert? How're you doing? Discovered this on TV today, quite by accident, as I was resting from household chores with my heating belt on. It had already started, so I didn't know how much I'd missed. Rushed to computer to see if it'd been posted somewhere so I could see it from the beginning. I just loved it & thought my dearest friends would appreciate it, too. The artwork's so lovely & the story, so true, is told so well. Such a delight to see the story unfolding in such an original & artistic way. Hope you'll enjoy it!
