I was born in San Francisco, joined the Army after high school. Returning home from Germany, a friend turned me onto a life in radio as a DJ. Like Mark Twain, who drew many of his characters from his life on the Mississippi; radio was a vehicle for me to travel the country, living and working in cities and towns across America.
When I moved to New York to pursue an acting career, I eventually got an agent and spent the next fifteen years doing voiceovers and on-camera work in addition to bits on Saturday Night Live, soaps and films (Wall Street, Big Business, etc). I was also the host of a daily radio show on a local station as well as over the ABC satellite for national broadcasts.
While in New York, I enrolled in The Writer’s Voice and creative writing at the New School. I later joined LongridgeWriters Group.

Mindful of a sensation of emptiness, Noadiah seeks out a monk, thinking he's had a similar feeling in his solitude, but the ascetic doesn't have the answer Noadiah is seeking. While on the mountain, he meets Joshua, who suggests a different path. Later in a cafe, Joshua's friends explain what the path holds for him. After a brief encounter with a woman at the Viewing Pool, goes in search for her.
