I've got forty-plus years of television and film production under my belt, writing, producing and directing for PBS and commercial television all across America and around the world.
Screenplay for American Playhouse - Alias Jimmy Valentine
Screenplays for Walt Disney - Red Riding Hood, and Hansel and Gretel
Directing and writing for Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood - ten wonderful years working with one of America's most beloved "neighbors."
And while I was at it, I hosted and narrated a bumper crop of children’s television storytelling series; Gather ‘Round, Gather ‘Round Again, and Teletales. All on Vimeo, if you're ready to be a kid again.
Narrated musical performances, too, with the Pittsburgh Symphony and the Baltimore Symphony, ranging from Tubby the Tuba to Aaron Copeland's Lincoln Portrait.
So, how do I earn my daily bread - other than writing novels that is? I'm the executive producer for America's longest-running cooking show Ciao Italia with Mary Ann Esposito. Not only daily bread but pasta too!
In short, I am a....
and damn good cook - thanks to Mary Ann Esposito.
