“I didn’t realize at the time while working
as an actor in NYC, I’d become a sponge soaking up dialogue, setting, and stage
directions. I learned many tools of writing during the years watching directors
like Mike Nichols and actors including Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, and
Billy Crystal. And would you believe, I was Geraldine Ferraro’s stand-in leg
model, my first job giving me entrée into all the Unions needed to work. When
the sweet time ended, I began another career and creative juices flowed.”
