Bio: I went to Stanford on a Volleyball scholarship after being cut from the team two years in a row. I don't care for the word "no." They said I was 'unathletic' with poor hand-eye coordination. I continued playing volleyball professionally in LA while acting in TV, film, student film and commercials. When I had my first manic episode, I was in Ketchum/Sun Valley Idaho, working in radio. I was sent to Salt Lake City, the nearest psych ward around. I sent out tapes from there, yeah, from the loony bin and got hired locally. Later I worked at "The Edge" and KUKQ in Phoenix, "The X" in LA, and "The Peak" in Spokane, WA. I did music journalism for "Hits" magazine "Melody Maker" (UK) and "The Arizona Republic." Now I write for International Bipolar Disorder, bphope.com and NewLifeOutlook (Bipolar) and try to find downtime to listen to new music, read books, see independent films and cable television. Right now "Billions," with Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti is my favorite show. I'm in sunny South Florida, have two cats and am married. I have bipolar disorder, bipolar I. I'm working on a book or two (isn't everyone)?
