I've worked in the Television Industry in Hollywood for 30 years as an editor, first on Music & Variety Specials and more recently on Sitcoms. I graduated from Ohio University with a Major in Radio-Television.
I was in Columbus since June of 2010 to help my mother, who was in the hospice-at-home program. I am her only child and we lost my father 8 years ago. She passed away on January 29. It took five months to close her Estate and sell the house, car and contents. I returned to LA in July of 2012.
I have never been married. I married my job earlier in my career and while I earned three Emmy Awards, the long hours and inability to plan because of a changing work schedule made it hard to also have a relationship. Thus, I have no children. I like kids, however as long as they turn into pumpkins in the nighttime.
My hobbies include computers, exercising, walking & hiking amateur radio and travel. I also like good food & restaurants and company. I traveled for 28 days in 2012 visiting London, Moscow, a boat cruise up the Volga to St. Petersburg, Prague and Munich. Whew! Did I mention that I then flew to Chicago to revisit the place where I did my college internship? I hadn't been back there in 36 years!
I also spent last Christmas on a cruise from L.A. to Ft. Lauderdale via the Panama Canal. It was fascinating and I met a lot of wonderful folks.
I started working out in August of 2010 and have lost quite a bit of weight in that time (my photo is before the weight loss). I spend an hour 3 to 4 times a week at the gym and enjoy it! I spend a lot of time on the elliptical machine and on the weights. I put about 10 of those pounds back on during the vacations but am back at the weights and elliptical trying to work them off.
