Overview

Over the years I have lived in many places and worked in a number of different fields: day-trading, poker (Las Vegas,) film, stage, restaurants. I've studied writing on my own and acedemically for twenty years: poetry, screenwriting, storywriting. What I bring to the table is life-long experience and a desire to share with the world what I have seen and what I have lived.

You can be assured that I live by a character of honesty. My word is all I have, and I am not about to compromise a belief that reflects who I am. I may question...

Service Description

I received a B.A. in Communication Arts/Writing in 1996 from Ramapo College of New Jersey, where I was the editor for "Alive," a journal dedicated to non-tradtional poetry and prose; and, in 1992, spent my summer studying Shakespeare in Performance and the British Novel at Regent's College in London, England.

After college, I entered into theatre. For two seasons I worked as a Production Assistant for the American Stage Company, also known as the Beacon Theatre, in Teaneck, N.J. Then, I moved on to Philadelphia, PA. where I worked as a Production Assistant for the Waalnut Street Theatre. Unfortunately, that is where my life drastically changed. I was run over by a bus and for two years I focused on my rehabilitation.

Not being able to work hard labor anymore, I moved on to acting. I attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. The study focused on Meisner. At the same time, I worked as an extra for film and television. Because there was little money to be made, I day-traded.

And finally, I moved to Vegas with an idea that the town had a character like any other. I was right, but the character was not to my liking. Nonetheless, while I was out there I continued to trade, play poker, and work for one of the local casinos. The best part about my time there was the wide range of people I met from all over the world, and their stories.
