On my own now and doing things my way.

In California, worked on many Hollywood TV shows, movies and commercials, while working at PIP Printing and MSAS Cargo International, along the way. This is for fast facts, information, nostalgia and history. Plus, info on the business of show. My expertise is/was entertainment reporting and writing. Less politics here for a reason.
