A diverse background in network and syndicated television and writing for cable television, I have also done research for and produced independent documentaries. Most recently I created an archive for an international social services foundation.
I have created and administered needs-assessment surveys for non-profits. One such survey was followed up by writing a resource guide for people living with AIDS/HIV, Project Return, which was later used as a prototype for a statewide proposal.
In the 1980s, I contributed to the underground art scene in Los Angeles with creating and producing two video events: “Henry Miller on Video” and “Stripped,” a video and still photo essay.
In addition, I have researched and written a number of successful grants from private foundations for various projects, including support for the early research of the Morris Kight biography.
I worked at Paramount Studios for twelve years in almost every department and the final four years I worked in television development for UBU Productions (Family Ties, Bronx Zoo, Duet and many others). We developed one-hour and half-hour original programming for network television and I assisted in the research and annotation of original projects.
After writing a half-hour episode of Big Brother Jake (“True Lou”) for the Family Channel, I participated in the by-invitation-only Wordsmiths Playwriting Workshop at the Los Angeles Theatre Center.
I enjoy a second career as a certified yoga instructor with a specialty in challenging conditions. My private and semi-private services are in-demand.
I look forward to the publication of the Morris Kight biography in May 2020 from Process Media (an imprint of Feral House).
