Years active 9 years

Actor, writer, director, improv comedian. Father of two. Capricorn, left-handed, color-blind. Lifelong teetotaller, never smoked, never done drugs. I can catch more than 20 quarters stacked on my elbow, and I didn't get my driver's license until I was 37.

Favorite movies: Ghostbusters and all the usual ones... Star Wars, BTTF, Indy, Gremlins, Jurassic Park, most all of the Muppets.... how about something a little more obscure? Last two movies I tracked down to buy were Under the Rainbow and Electric Dreams.

Favorite music: Mostly soundtracks. I like to hear an eclectic mix of styles by multiple artists more than I like one group's various songs. John Williams' scores have the power to make me cry.

Favorite TV shows: I despise reality TV, so I don't have cable or satellite; all we watch are DVD's and Blu-Rays. I love the Muppet Show and my kids watch mostly 80's cartoons. I also like improv shows like Whose Line Is It Anyway? and Drew Carey's Improv-A-Ganza (which I watched on YouTube and then a friend burned to disc.)

Favorite books: H. Beam Piper's Fuzzy Trilogy, anything by my late mentor Brian Daley.
