When not writing tv pilots and consulting and teaching (online) and working actively with the WGA West, he likes tennis, playing words with friends and online poker, web surfing, making web series -- of which this is a prime example -- -- and he is now being forced to learn bridge -- which is better than dressage -- but only slightly.
