was a very accommodating baby, born on Labor Day many, many years
ago (six weeks early...I was impatient even back then) in a small
town in Vermont to a mother of Irish/Scottish/French descent and
a father of English and Algonquin heritage. I was raised in Albany,
NY, and at seventeen, I began touring with a production of “Jesus
Christ Superstar”, which was like living Groundhog Day for
the next three years of my life. Following that stint, I did some
regional theater in Rochester, NY and worked at various odd jobs
to make ends meet.
Bored with that and looking for a new adventure,
I enlisted in the US Army where I became a Military Police officer.
As a cop for Uncle Sam, I was stationed with a STRAF (Strategic
Armed Forces) unit in Northern California and with SETAF (Southern
European Task Force) in Northern Italy. After being honorably discharged,
I took a break and went back to doing some community theater until
an opportunity came up to work in law enforcement again and I have
been in and out of police work and related fields ever since. I
have been a federal and civilian police officer, correctional officer
(in a male facility), a certified licensed private investigator,
surveillance agent for a casino, loss prevention detective, chief
of security at a resort and country club in Palm Springs and a security
manager at Warner Bros. Studio in Burbank. I am fortunate to have
been able to do many amazing things. And I am not done yet.
Recently, I have been back in Vermont, keeping
an eye on my feisty elderly mother, constantly writing and looking
for my next adventure.
