Gender Male
Industry Communications or Media
Occupation Editor, writer, entertainment industry analyst...Available!
Location Los Angeles, California, United States
Introduction Born in Georgetown, Washington,D.C. Raised in Maryland, Iceland & Florida. Lived in Chicago for 9 years as a college student then as a stage actor. Moved to Los Angeles at 26 to continue my acting career. Worked at the Tamarind Theater (now UCB) & The Coast Playhouse and everything but a Christmas album. I kept it real with regular jobs and years of good ol' dues-paying. I got my first break on the editorial side of the industry in the newsroom of The Hollywood Reporter's L.A. bureau. I worked there for 7 years, through more than 1200 daily issues and many mergers, until 2008. I worked hard and learned everything I could. Shook a lot of hands and I'd like to think I continue to be a genuinely nice guy. Thanks for stopping by and reading!
Interests Publishing, entertainment, music, books, music, films, pop culture.
Favorite Movies Jaws (I was an Eastern Seaboard kid who'd jump off any dock into the Atlantic or Chesapeake Bay on a whim, rain or shine. After 'Jaws' my imagination took hold and not so much oceanic swimming)
Favorite Music Too numerous to name individually. I like most music. Music is king.
Favorite Books Beloved; The Other Hollywood; Parting The Waters; Jane Fonda: My Life; Bad Dirt; Kindred; Divided Soul; Think & Grow Rich.
