Enjoys Writing, Photography, and Poker.

Graduated from the army film school that was then at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey. (1969 for Still Photography & 1972 for Motion Picture.)  Afterward, served as a motion-picture cameraman and still photographer in the United States Army Signal Corps. Some of my most notable military photography assignments were:

1)1969~71 Oakdale, PA. Provided photographic support for the army reserves and the ROTC in the Pittsburgh area.

2) 1971~72 Documenting the armistice meetings in Panmunjom Korea while being stared down by North Korean soldiers with eyes of steel. 

3) 1977~78 Still and motion-picture documentation of army weapons, explosives, and equipment testing at sub-zero temperatures under beautiful Aurora Borealis at the Cold Regions Test Center, Fort Greely, Alaska without losing any fingers, nose, toes, or whatever else.

4) 1972~77 & 1985~87 Making and editing 16mm medical training film productions to include film documentation of new surgical procedures and forensic autopsy cases at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in Washington, DC. Additionally, motion picture documentation of preventive and protective procedures of chemical and biological exposure at Ft. Detrick, Maryland without contracting any ugly or nasty micro bugs or any weird zombie-like contagious pathogens.

5) 1978~82 Instructed Army, Air Force, and Marine service members the science and craft of motion-picture photography, film editing, sound recording, sound element mixing, lighting ratios/design as well as scene blocking and action/dialog directing at the Lowry AFB, Denver, CO. between the weekends of snow skiing.

Now living in scenic Overton, Nevada.  A one gas station quiet rural town in a valley between some mesas near the north side of Lake Mead,  75 mins from the action in Las Vegas,  and not too far from the UFOs and 'em aliens in Area-51. I enjoy terrain photography, screenwriting, and playing poker in Mesquite or Las Vegas.

AS A WRITER: I enjoy writing stories about:

1) Ordinary people overcoming overwhelming dilemmas and conundrums.

2) Outrageous characters doing outrageous things for outrageous reasons.

3) Stories threaded with a secondary story that meets in a logical (sometimes colliding) exciting conclusion.

I strive to accomplish in my stories a stimulation of our basic emotions of Mad, Sad, Glad, Scare, Envy, Empathy, and concluding with a Comical or a Surprise twist. Why? I want the audience to drip tears into their popcorn, spill their drinks while laughing their asses off, to SCREAM at the screen, and run to the lobby until their courage is regained to return to their seats.

Whatever the story, I want the audience to be entertained, overwhelmed with emotions, and feel that they got more than their money's worth. Also, I want my stories to bring light to the possible present or future enrichment of humankind.

I want my style of writing to be uniquely original and NOT a copy of another’s design. However, my heroes in writing and film-making are Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchcock, Rod Serling, James Cameron, Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Chris Carter, and S. Paul Klein.

My latest works:

  1. SCI-FI "The Extraterrestrial Highway" features two female leads.
  1. THRILLER “Fire Dancer” An army lieutenant resigns her commission to become a pro poker player.
  1. ACTION / COMEDY “Springtime in Alaska” Is a teaser of my next on-going story project with a flare of Route 66 meets Northern Exposure.

I welcome your comments.
