GEORGE DISMUKES spent the first half of his life in pursuit of adventure. This ranged from bullfighting as a youth to milking poisonous snakes professionally at Ross Allen’s Reptile Institute in Silver Springs, Florida. The early 60s found him chasing wild animals across the Serengeti in the movie business and operating an animal export company in Iquitos, Peru.
He spent many years exploring archaeological sites of the ancient Maya Indians in Central America and studying their lost civilization. He also lived in Honduras, where the story, TWO FACES OF THE JAGUAR takes place.
In 1980, he began a video production company in Houston, Texas and worked as a ’triple threat’
(writer/director/producer) creating some of the Houston market’s most creative television commercials. He won a CLEO award for his production of a series of television PSAs concerning prevention of child abuse, funded through a grant from the University of Houston.
Currently, he lives on the Texas Coast with his soul mate and closest friend, Nadine, where he writes and works in magazine advertising.
His hobbies include growing exotic chili peppers and experimenting with salsa recipes. Above all, George is a devout animal lover and has two dogs, named Pulga and Gizmo, respectively.
