When I was contacted about the DVD release of the film Dark Side of Genius by Scorpion Releasing, they asked if I would do an interview expose of my career and life in the Entertainment Industry. 

(This interview includes my embarrassing misapprehension that Peter Greene who had also been considered for the lead role had died, an inaccurate rumor at the time.)

I’ve been fortunate to work with some great talents over the years, who believed in my message, vision and passion, such as the legendary Jack Douglas (Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, John Lennon), Andy Slater, Derek Frigo, Jenny Price, VH1 Exec. Leah Horwitz, Warren Zevon & Don Henley’s band, Beastie Boys Adam Yauch & Mike D, Randy Jackson at Sony, Lou Maglia at Zoo Records. I co-wrote radio hits, Inside a Flower, Tell Me, & So Delicate, So Pure, with Italian Pop Star, Elisa Toffoli & Corrado Rustici. I wrote & sang with Guitar Hero Derek Frigo in our band U4EA & co-wrote songs with Joey Molland (Badfinger) & T. Schools on the album, Wear a New Face. My music has been used FOX’s Party of Five & the films Broken Vessels & Crimes of the Past. Dark Side of Genius & Fame-LA placed my songs as well.

My career began in my teens in Seattle, as a Street Musician in the famous Pike Place Market & the Seattle Theatre Community. I was found there by casting directors of films, The Chocolate War & Class of 1999, which shot there & opened my road to LA, where I made films such as Wild at Heart, Wild Orchid II, Dark Side of Genius, The Little Death & Book of Love. I also enjoyed roles in television on The Tracey Ullman Show, Fame-LA, Moloney, Outer Limits, Dark Skies (as Jim Morrison) & Red Shoe Diaries.

I’ve been a Fellow in Good Standing of The Society of Antiquaries of Scotland for near two decades, and a member of The Clan Fraser association for California for life. thank you for listening.
