From all of us at Freedom Cocktail, have a very happy 4th of July! If you haven’t already done so, take a few minutes to read the Declaration of Independence. It’s a great way to remember just why our Founding Father’s wanted to be free.
Actor - Writer - Director - Radio - Veteran | I like ‘guy’ things: women, sports, video games, dogs, drinking, football, shooting guns, war movies, action movies, sci-fi movies and playing the hero. I am a red-blooded, American male through-and-through. But, I have another side as well, a deep and entrenched creative side, which started with writing and evolved to include acting and radio. As a result, I have appeared in nearly 100 stage shows and been involved in dozens of motion pictures, including two independent features available on Amazon Prime.
I have also been in broadcast radio for over 20 years. Thus far, I have been honored to receive five GAB Awards from the Georgia Association of Broadcasters: Two for Best On-Air Personality and three for Best Talk Show.
It was only natural with these pursuits, podcasting would eventually be added to my plate. In late 2017, I decided to start a show with my buddy and co-host, Walt Murray, called, The Wilder Ride. We examine the films of Gene Wilder in the movies by minutes format. This has opened the door to meeting so many new and amazing podcasters from around the world and led to some amazing friendships! As Shakespeare puts it, “I am amazed and know not what to say!” Afterwards, my wife and I started a show called, 'The Marriage Fit Podcast" where we talk about our lives as a blended family. Our tag line is it's a show about trying to make things fit, staying fit, and not throwing a fit.
Of all the roles I play, though, I want to point out that there are two I consider more important than any I have ever played (or will ever play) and that is being a DAD and HUSBAND. I have four girls, ages, 26, 24, 23, and 21 and there is nothing I won't do for them. And, none of life's ambitions would be possible without the strength and support of my best friend in the entire world, my wife, Susan. Regardless of anything else, nothing will ever outshine them.
