Moved to LA in 77 with a manuscript treatment in hand with the intention to move it over into a screenplay. It was made into a movie. The overall experience was brutal for a small town greenhorn like myself. After being invited to an acting class I began studying with a few notible teachers and had a reasonable acting career for twenty years. However, I always kept my interest in writing alive. Over the last number of years, I have been focused on my writing…but do continue to audition and perform when calls come in.
