You want to know about me?
I was born at a very early age and luckily my mother was in attendance. I’ve always been a writer, even when people told me to stop it because I was damaging the walls.
My earliest fictional efforts was fan fiction at its finest. Never satisfied with the plots of my favorite TV shows, I began writing my own stories for The Protectors, Wild Wild West, Bonanza and later Simon and Simon, Tour of Duty, Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The A-Team and now Supernatural.
But credit for starting me on the road to paid publication goes to two very special people.
First, my brother Danny, who, when told I wanted to be a book author, said, “start with magazines, because no one will buy a book you wrote”. I dedicated my first book, TV Toys, to him.
Second is the actor Don Matheson from Land of the Giants. You see Don, I lied to you. When I first moved to California, I tracked Don down and interviewed him for a “magazine”. Only there was no magazine. So once Don gave me the interview I had no choice but to FIND someplace to publish it. I did (Epilogue Magazine) and I’ve been selling ever since.
I now have four books and hundreds of magazine articles in print. Best of all, my writing has allowed me to do something I always dreamed of as a child, hang around on a soundstage watching them film my favorite TV shows. And to top it off, I got paid for it.
Two other goals I had in life: acting on TV and seeing my name in the credits of a movie also came true. I’ve had the great pleasure of working with the zany Zach Selwyn on G4-TV and the even wackier crew at Blue Collar TV. I did a local TV commercial for a bridal shop and I’ve had roles in some indie movies. I’m finding more and more that I prefer the other side of the camera and I’ve worked up from PA on Ten Inch Hero to Assistant Director on an insanely dramatic movie called Callous, directed by and starring Joey Lanai.
These days, I mostly hop around the web, blogging and taking care of the communities and social media for some special people.
I’m always looking for a new challenge, so if you’ve got something you think would interest me, hit me up.
