Born on the lower east side of Manhattan during the depression era. I was molested as a child and suffered severe near-sightedness, which caused me to become extremely shy and introverted. At the same time I was transformed into another person when telling stories to my siblings and people in the neighborhood.
Presently I reside in West Hollywood, California and attend classes at the Emeritus College. My interests are Drama, writing short stories and poetry, art and T’ai Chi. I taught Drama and T’ai Chi at the Van Nuys Senior Center. I have been involved in Stage, Screen, Television and Radio. I am a member of Screen Actors Guild and American Federation of Radio and T.V. Artists. My life story has recently been published, "Escape/Pearls of Travail" which will soon appear on the Internet and book stores.
