Just your average sales executive/general aviation pilot, actor, former DJ and slightly aging tennis player looking to tell a story!!! You can buy my book “America’s Top Roller Coasters and Amusement Parks”
In addition to 3 dozen TV (over 500+ radio) interviews done so far promoting my book, (Including NYC, LA, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and 40 of the top 50 markets in the country) I am also involved with a new reality show project called “Thrill Ride Maniacs.” This pilot is now in the production stage and will be pitched to the networks when completed. If you would like to have an interview with me, feel free to contact myself or Shannon Rose at Eclectic Media Productions http://mediaproductions.tv/
I enjoy politics, writing, flying, occasional acting/DJing, and of course thrill rides but what I am most proud of is my work with the American Heart Association (AHA). In a relatively short time (and trying to teach non-profit management how to sell in the corporate environment!!!) we were able to successfully promote Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) nationwide and make them legal for laypeople to use in the United States. The next time you go to the airport, a ball game, the mall, your local office cafeteria, or any public facility and see those defibrillators on the wall, think of AHA and the work that a select few did in order to lobby, educate, train and promote these most vital life-saving devices. I am very proud to have had an important role in this nationwide (and now worldwide) effort to make AED’s the “standard of resuscitation care” and treatment. For more information on CPR, First Aid and AED training courses, you can contact the American Heart Association at
My book “America’s Top Roller Coasters and Amusement Parks” has done well and I have appeared on 30 plus TV morning shows (4 dozen in radio) around the country including NYC, LA and in 6 of the top 10 markets in the nation. Below are some of the video segments that were made this year from this book tour. (NYC, Boston, Houston and Springfield, MA.)
