With the first Master of Fine Arts in Acting from Florida State University, I got my first acting job in a regional theater right after I got my degree. That show went to Broadway. 20 year career in theater. A second 20 career as a Vice President at a Wall Street Brokerage. Screenwriting for nearly 15 years.
Unique traits: My specialties are lean, succinct prose and edgy, tongue-oriented dialog (as opposed to dialog for the eye -- there's a big difference).
