My journey began in school plays, summer stock, nigh clubs, touring the country as lead singer in a rock band, and then the big move to Hollywood. I joined the cast of DAYS OF OUR LIVES for two years, appeared in several television shows and then landed a role every tall guy in town wanted. Ramsey, the hapless clown in ICE STATION ZEBRA. A great cast, Rock Hudson, Ernie Borgnine, Patrick McGoohan, Tony Bill, Jim Brown, Lloyd Noland, a great supporting cast and of course me. Little did I know during nineteen weeks of working before the camera that later, when the editing began, the decision to cut the comedy from the film would be made. To my astonishment and of courser a broken heart, my role was trimmed and dialog cut. I’m seen all through the film, but nothing dribbles from my precious lips. I had been silenced by the powers that run the studio and the director who was faced with making difficult decisions. John Sturges was a brilliant director who I had the joy to work with both in front of the camera and behind it. He is partly the blame for my eventual step behind the camera to make films. He taught me the basics for which I am very grateful.

WITH PATRICK MCGOOHAN IN “ICE STATION ZEBRA”






In high school i loved to write short stories, plays and articles for the school paper. In-between acting roles in Hollywood, i continued writing stories and eventually tried my hand at screen writing. To my surprise I sold the first script I wrote and that was followed by writing a string of low-budget screenplays. I was blessed to write a few things for television, a few pilot shows and series scripts and finally had enough courage to direct my first film. The film was terrible yet strangely went into distribution and actually made a profit. A second film was financed with independent funds and I quickly grew production legs. I was force-fed to learn how to produce, trim when necessary and spend production money as if it were my own.

Over the next few years I managed to write, produce and direct a short list of feature films. I joined the Writers Guild of America and the Directors Guild of America where I spent the next twenty plus years making movies. From tiny film budgets to major productions, I discovered what a well-rounded filmmaker meant. I develop[ed music scores and actually wrote a few, turned back the clock and wrote a few songs for film, and discovered I had found my magic button. I have listed most of my adventures here on the site, and had a ball doing each and every project I worked on.

On my site you will find links that will take you to our film production sites where we will share synopsis, cast lists, production stills, product information and a list of our current activities. We will do our best to keep this site up to date and hope you enjoy your visit. As a filmmaker, I have travelled through all sorts of story lines and now enjoy making films the whole family can enjoy. Our company specializes in producing G and PG rated feature films and enjoy the challenge of taking a variety of subject matters, cleaning up the dialog and creating a film that can be enjoyed and entertained at any age.
