This website is dedicated to setting the record straight.

Today’s truth exists in a virtual world. And since, as Frank Lloyd Wright once noted, “The truth is more important than the facts,” I have decided to attempt to put my house in order. Hopefully you’ll find your visit worthwhile.

You may browse the site by clicking on the tabs that line the top of this page. Each tab will take you into a different arena. The tab marked “Films” will take you to movie projects both present and past.

Discover something’s amiss…? Drop me a line and let me know. If you’re right, I’ll be the first to change it. If you’re not, in the saintly words of the dear departed mother of Chicago’s late Mayor Richard J. Daly: “There’s a sprig o’ mistletoe dangling off the tail o’ me coat…”
