In addition to writing, other paths in my checkered past include over a decade of acting in Hollywood. Prior to that, I did seven years of hard labor as a stunt performer for the Walt Disney Company theme parks in various roles in Florida and France. I have worked in theater since age ten as an actor and later as a director and producer. I operate in the marketplace as a minister and love officiating weddings. The summer/fall of 2017 has me in development as producer & actor of a one-man production scheduled for a US tour in 2018.
