I am excited to be joining Patreon as I believe it is the perfect place to move my collaborations to the next level. Maybe you have listened to my radio program or have watched my TV talk shows? I am proud of these conversations with artists, musicians, authors, and community leaders. Maybe you seen the plays that I have directed or you have collaborated with me on a performance piece or some other theatrical event? If you know my work, you know that I have high expectations for art and entertainment. It is a pleasure to have you join me here. 

I am teaming up with funny man Johnny Rizzo to create a game show featuring dead luminaries playing TEXAS HOLD 'EM.  This TV/Web series will showcase wonderful character actors from the greater New York City region. Think of Mother Theresa going "all in" with a pair of queens, or Dick Nixon losing with three eights to Jackie Kennedy's flush. The concept is a unique melding Steve Allen's MEETING OF THE MINDS, Bravo's CELEBRITY POKER SHOWDOWN, and Drew Carey's WHOSE LINE IS IT, ANYWAY. 

We are holding auditions in May and need some start up financing to have help from the best talent in our area. While we work on HELL'S STAKE POKER, I will continue producing and hosting my two regularly scheduled programs. 

I have a background in producing and directing and have been involved in over 100 theatrical productions in the past 30 years. I have hosted thousands of hours of radio programing since I began doing a regular radio show in 1976. My Second Saturday Magazine on WPKN is a monthly radio program feature interviews with authors and musicians; that show has been on the air for over ten years. Your sustaining support will help me to continue to produce my radio program and other projects including my weekly half hour TV program called Westchester County Round Up.

We need to rent rehearsal studio space and begin to pay our design artists. When you contribute toward this goal, you will be the most important part of this process.
