My career as a professional actor began in 1975 and continues up to the present.
Though I might characterize my current working status as semi-retired, I am still
active as a writer and producer. Over the span of four decades I was able to make
about 35 feature films and television projects, varying of course in quality and
popularity. A few of my films have endured and over time gained quite a following. I
have had the pleasure and honor to work with some of the finest craftsmen in the
industry; actors, directors, producers, writers, cinematographers and technicians.
Though at times a bumpy road, it’s been nothing if not illuminating and self-
revelatory. I often feel so blessed and grateful to count myself among those
fortunate enough to realize their dream. I spend much of
my time now traveling all over the world meeting fans and thanking them for the
love and support they have so kindly bestowed upon me over these many years
since my professional journey began. It is to them I owe a great deal of my success.
Because of the cultural significance of films like Boulevard Nights and
American Me, I was able through my work, to forge an intimate bond with the
people for whom these particular films offer a deeper, more personal experience,
beyond that of mere entertainment. What greater tribute can be paid an actor than
to know his or her work has touched millions of people all over the world? These films and my work in them have left an
indelible impression that continues to resonate "as time goes by". Now, in these my
golden years so to speak, I have matured into a man who can appreciate the past and
enjoy the present while looking toward the future.
