I have been working in the film industry in NY since 1980, when I started as an animal trainer on Milos Forman's Ragtime. I worked for 15 busy years as an animal trainer and have over 90 movies (Awakenings, Goodfellas, Desperately Seeking Susan, Moonstruck, Ghostbusters, Cotton Club, Once Upon A Time In America, Radio Days, Fisher King, etc), hundreds of TV commercials, TV shows and print ads to my credit. During that time, I also worked on Broadway shows (including the original Tony Award winning musical Nine in 1982-83), and on the NYC Opera (12 years) and the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular (10 years). In around 1995, after working as the animal coordinator on Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys, I transitioned into Locations work.

I scout and manage primarily for TV commercials and have worked on ads for virtually every product known to mankind. I have also worked on over 40 films (Howard Stern's Private Parts, As Good As It Gets, In and Out, Flawless, 15 Minutes, Little Nicky, Bourne Ultimatum, etc), for TV shows (Sex and the City, Ed, Law And Order SVU, Orange Is The New Black, and The Knick) as well as many print ads. I am a member of Teamsters Local 817, and live in Westchester County with my wife, 2 kids and Ozzie, our dog.
