It was a cold Wednesday morning in March, that same year Around the World in Eighty Days would win 5 Oscars, and just moments after his birth his arrival into this world was brought to light on one of North Carolina's earliest television stations located in the Piedmont Triad community. Only 9 years earlier WFMY was one of only 66 FM radio stations in the United States.

 

Soon after his birth he was swept away to Florida where he would spend his toddler years listening to music his aunt would play on her guitar and the stories his uncle and friends would tell about the bright lights of Las Vegas and the entertainment business.

 

By age 9 he had recorded a single about his girlfriend and played rhythm guitar in a rock band. He later went on to write 3 books and had a short story featured in an educational journal and was still just in Junior High.

 

He began traveling back and forth from California to North Carolina to spend time with his father on the West Coast and on the East Coast with his mother. While in California in the mid-seventies he began managing rock bands and recording his own music. He formed his first record company is 1978 then in April of 1997 sold off controlling interest in his music business and bought an entertainment company. In 2003 he reorganized his own entertainment and production company and renamed it Across the Canvas Productions.

 

Somewhere between all this he had a popular college radio song “Rage” in 1979, a popular rock radio song “Breaking Rope” in 1982, and a well-known sound track CD Broken Rocking Chair in 2001. He starred in The Dash Show television series from 1999 to 2004. He has appeared on stages throughout the USA for more than 5 decades. He is also an award winning writer, poet, artist, and educator.

 

Nowadays he spends his time making music, writing, producing, and directing the entertainment video journal Blank Surfaces. The program now in its 18th season highlights talents from in front of and behind the cameras from around the world and various other projects for Across the Canvas Productions including The Dash Show which will be back in production as part of Blank Surfaces starting in the April 2017 editions.  He is currently working with Dean Pyles on the 3rdnd incarnation of Consoling the Stars that went in to production on Christmas Day 2016 and a film based on the script Fighting for Family. In 2017 he also returned to his photography to help people in the entertainment and fashion industries lower  their cost for head shots and modeling portfolios. He is continuing his work on commercials and PSA styled shorts for various charity organizations to those interested individuals build their resumes and to gain experience in the industry.
