I have had an adventurous life and have traveled all over the world. I pursued the study of theatre and Mass Communications at Fontbonne College and University of Mo St Louis. I had always been the class clown and became a comedian on a dare at the senior show in 1971. I knew that's what I was suppose to do at that moment. I did a television show that was syndicated across the country for three years and was nominated for an emmy all three years and won the Emmy the first year running. After the show was cancelled I traveled and performed all over the country and was lucky enough to land in Hawaii and it was a 16 year party in paradise. As the parents got older I knew I was going to have to return to care for my mentally challenged older brother Joe. He is my hero. I returned to St Louis and worked in sales in the cable television industry, the telecommunications industry and in my golden years I sell home improvements. Oh the glamour of it all! Today I reside in South St Louis caring for my brother and and looking forward to retirement.

School Story

I studied Mass Communications at UMsL and Theatre Arts at Fontbonne College after college I got in at the bottom floor of cable television in 1980 and was in the industry for 18 years working on television productions, producing, hosting, writing and distribution. While there I earned
3 Emmy nominations and won my first local Emmy in 1983. Nominated again in 1984 and 1985. While doing the television show I was still doing stand up on the weekends and appearing all over the country. While on vacation I was in Hawaii I met Freddie Morris who was a great entertainer and we became friends . He asked me to get up and perform one night and it became a 16 year friendship before he died. He introduced
Me to many people including Don Ho. Don liked what I did on stage and he brought me to Hawaii. I loved that place and the life. For 16 years I experience paradise. As my family was getting older I came home and today I care for my older brother Joe. He is mentally challenged. Yes, he is the smarter of the two. I quit stand up in 2005 and work in sales. I hope to retire in 2022 and return to paradise a few times and a greater dream retire there. Life is good and GOD has taken care of me. Everything good in my life has come from him.
