I AM GARDENER & LOVER OF ANIMALS …

The photos above represent art, places, people, animals & events that have meaning to me. I have either known the people you see or I have worked with them. There are others still such as Albert Einstein, Louis Vuitton, Niccolo Machiavelli & King Henry VIII, among others, who have had profound influence upon my life. This is the reason they are here. The locations you may note are places I have lived, visited or have been incarcerated at. There are 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 myabyss of bliss.

These are just a few of the laboratory chimpanzees released to the Gut Aiderbichl sanctuary in Austria. The chimps peer cautiously out at the wide open spaces of the sanctuary before excitedly embracing one another.

BIO: 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 am conceited & arrogant. I tell everybody my IQ is 183  but it’s actually only 162 (as if that even matters), so I suppose I lie too. I am a boastful & cocky guy who says he doesn’t care but he 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.

I found this and I thought it pretty cool & funny too; a film I co-starred in with David Carradine & Eb Lottimer in Manilla a long time ago.  

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 Moulton Playhouse in Laguna Beach, Darkhorse in Cyberqueer by Tom Jacobson directed by Mark Bringleson at Robert Schrock’s Celebration Theater in Hollywood in both the 1996 & 1998 productions.  I have appeared on TV in over four dozen productions in various formats and several films.

I have also 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 reside in Los Angeles.

  2. Narrated by Abu Huraira (RA): Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) said, “Angels come to you in succession by night and day and all of them get together at the time of the Fajr and ‘Asr prayers. Those who have passed the night with you (or stayed with you) ascend (to the Heaven) and Allah asks them, though He knows everything about you, well, “In what state did you leave my slaves?” The angels reply: “When we left them they were praying and when we reached them, they were praying.”

  3. What a load of Bull Shit I have in my mouth. It tastes pretty good actually. Where was I? Oh yes … you are a delusional, narcissistic sociopath. This is a much more accurate description. Sorry for the brutal truth but I had the misfortune of knowing this one and lived to regret it. Maybe my mother was wrong when she insisted the doctors not euthanize me at my birth because my organs might be of value to brain dead monkeys if no one else. Or … maybe I’m in love? I don’t know … all I am certain of is that I am a slug. My mother and father had slug in them & so do I. I don’t smell pretty like a slug but I feel like one. I have never made love or have had sex with a human being but I have had both with a giant Madagascar Fart Mouthed Slug named Dennis, so I know all about slugs. You must think me atrocious & an abomination. Everyone else does. I expect that. I am a bit of a freak. OK, I am a lot of a freak. Love me anyway, won’t you? Great work by the way. Keep it up.

  4. You’ve been to outer space and on a magic carpet ride and nether time did you consider swooping by the UK to pick me up!! I’m hurt! Elizabeth Taylor at The Pyramids… :o) wasn’t Michael Jackson there too, scoping out locales for a new video, owwwww. I was at The Emerald City after escaping the Dark Forest I could definitely have used your magic carpet before the witches arrived!

    Glad you’re back, I need the normality in my life which you provide on a daily basis :o)

  5. Julie, Julie, Julie, what can I say? I am starting to put two and together. So far, I have come up to the sum of five, what am I doing wrong? XXXOOOXXXSCO

    PS You would have made a much better Butterfly McQueen, I agree. And Valentino’s mother was so struck by my likeness to her son, she left me Falcon’s Lair. I never go there, too dusty. But you can have it if you want. HUGS AND KISSES, LET’S DO LUNCH!
