We had horses, chickens, turkeys, pigs, goats, cows, cats, dogs, and a lot of fresh air. It was rural and even though I loved that lifestyle growing up, I'm definitely a big city person now after living in both NYC & LA for the past 27 years. I've studied at some of the most prestigious schools in New York City "The Neighborhood Playhouse, New Actor Workshop, Terry Schreiber Studios, Weist-Barron" and with some of the most respected teachers in the business. Following that wonderful career as an actor, I had to manage restaurants at night. I managed "The Coffee Shop" a very trendy café in NYC, other places I managed were B Smith’s, America, Metropolitan Café. In 1997 I was the managing partner of a cigar bar called “The Grotto”, it became a very special place for the entertainment people of NYC. Here in LA I managed The Foundation Room at the House of Blues, Pig n’ Whistle Hollywood, Falcon Hollywood, all Hot Spots in LA. I love sports, and I’m also a very big U of Michigan football fan. I helped set-up the game watches on Saturday morning on both coasts. Here in LA we can have up to 1000 people show up to watch their favorite team the Michigan Wolverines. Hail to the Victors!
