    addition to serving as executive producer or producer on numerous
    television movies for network and syndication, a health & lifestyle
    cable series, three documentaries, an original eight-part video series
    and pilots for syndication and cable (see accompanying list.) He also
    has written three original theatrical shows for teenage performers,
    and directed many hours of documentary footage in Mongolia with the
    Dalai Lama and Richard Gere.

    One of his current projects, The Dinner Set Gang
    (www.dinnersetgang.com), was profiled on both CBS/60 Minutes (story
    nominated for an Emmy) and Court TV. He has worked with many stars,
    including Kiefer Sutherland, Johnny Cash, Andy Griffith, Richard Gere,
    Blair Underwood, Angela Lansbury, Lee Remick, Marsha Mason, Mary
    Steenburgen, Ron Silver, Gregory Harrison, Kenny Rogers and Chris

    Prior to A-Films and Telecom, he was in charge of Daytime
