NOTE: The photos above represent art, places, people, animals & events that have some meaning for me. I have either known the people you see or I have worked with them. There are others still, such as Albert Einstein, Jesus, Louie Vuitton & King Henry VIII of England, among others, who have each had a profound influence upon my life & that is the reason why they are here. Some of these figures actually visit me whenever I astral or time travel. The locations you may note are places I have lived, visited or have been incarcerated at. There are also nations represented here that do not have an extradition treaty with the USA. The reason for their inclusion should be obvious to you. If not now, then perhaps after you have scrolled down this page a bit into my very own private wonder-world deep within a not-to-be-missed abyss of bliss.
I am a reclusive, private & somewhat odd middle-aging guy living in the most densely populated section of Los Angeles. I am single, 5.11, 180 pounds, brown, green, so on, so on & so forth. I enjoy strolling the moon lit beach & walking in the rain, etc. I will consider any offer for companionship no matter how shallow or nefarious your intentions may be. I accept that the less depth & the most ill will you can muster is all I can possibly hope for. I raise a perpetually flowering garden as well as several dogs & my familiar (as in Hamlet), named Blackie the Cat. I have a pedigree in fine arts. I mope a lot. I whine. I am obnoxious. I write because it keeps me from acting out. I am basically a juvenile delinquent who never, or ever, will grow up. On the other hand, I am a fine, funny & passionate compassionate soul with great insight into the language of pain & joy. I am very humble at times, but usually I’m conceited & arrogant. I tell everybody my IQ is 183, but it’s actually only 162 (as if that even mattered), so I suppose I lie too, however, I prefer the euphemism, embellish the truth. I am a boastful & cocky guy who says he doesn’t care but I may be insecure instead. In conclusion, I am trouble. Your mother & father would be very concerned if you brought me to dinner unless they are psychiatrists. Their curiosity about mental health might trump their fear.
Directly above, may I present Sir Francis Harry Compton Crick, OM, FRS (June 8, 1916–July 28, 2004); Sir Francis Crick was an English molecular biologist, biophysicist, & neuroscientist, who, along with Dr. James D. Watson & Maurice Wilkins, were awarded The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1962 for unraveling the structure of the DNA helix in 1953. Far be it for me to brag, but I must say I was deservedly awarded a full academic scholarship to study with this man at the University of California, San Diego. At this time, Sir Crick was a non-resident fellow with the Jonas Salk Institute researching molecular biology & human genetics. This photo was actually taken on the grounds of the Jonas Salk Institute. The institute is located in La Jolla directly across the road from my dorm room situated on a cliff overlooking Black’s nude beach. The Salk Institute will figure prominently in my life a half dozen years later.

Crick was far more interested in talking about hydrogen fusion as a perpetual source of pure, clean, green energy. In fact, if he spoke of genetics or biology at all, it was only in the context of praising me. Feeling ignored, betrayed & inferior, other students in my class (students who actually deserved my scholarship much more than I), rioted early one morning on a silent Christmas eve. Awoken from a deep slumber of astral time traveling & right in the middle of a toast I was making to Anne Boleyn at a very fine raucous supper along with King Henry VIII, I was alerted to the presence of raging & furious undergrads in the halls of my dormitory by an awful tune they were playing on a Panasonic Boom Box. The tune on the boom was ‘The Ride of the Valkyries’ by Richard Wagner. Fortunately for me and the rest of the western world, these spoiling spoiled sports were decimated, irradiated & evaporated by my little toy hydrogen-fusion ray gun.
Sir Crick was also professor emeritus in microbiology at U.C.S.D. The scholarship I received there was a marvel of sorts, for I had never taken a math or science class throughout my entire career in high school. This is the truth. It is also a fine testimony to my peerless talent as a con man.
I am a graduate of the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco under the direction of BILL BALL. I am a graduate of the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City under the direction of SANFORD MEISNER. I studied with STELLA ADLER in Los Angeles at Theater Vanguard in West Hollywood on Melrose Avenue. I studied Shakespeare with the director and scholar LEE SHALLET at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa. I was mentored by SANDY DENNIS at Herbert Berghof Studios (HB Studios) in New York City. I have performed in over fifty equity or equity waiver staged productions including the role of Max in the US West Coast Premiere of Bent by Martin Sherman directed by David Marshal Grant at the Coast Playhouse in West Hollywood, the Man in Woman Behind Bars by Tom Eyen directed by RON LINK at the Alcazar Theater in San Francisco, Nugget in Equus at The Old Globe Theater in San Diego and the Laguna Moulten Playouse in Laguna Beach, Darkhorse in Cyberqueer by Tom Jacobson directed by Mark Bringleson at Robert Shrock’s Celebration Theater in Hollywood, in both the 1996 & 1998 hit productions. I have appeared on TV in over four dozen productions in various formats and several films. I studied with Sir Francis Crick, who was awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine along with Dr. James D.Watson and Maurice Wilkins for unraveling the structure of the DNA helix, at the University of California, San Diego. I am a native New Yorker, Woodside, Queens. I currently reside in Los Angeles.
