I enjoy writing, photography, cinema, craft beers, and my family.

Self-portrait 1986

I’ve worked in film and television production for over twenty-five years.

My experience includes broadcast engineering, producing, directing, writing, editing, and mastering.

Show formatting for ESPN in Edit 2, in 1999.

I’ve created content for ESPN, ESPN International, ABC Sports, CBS News, CBS Eye On People, A&E, and many others.

Digital Suite

From 1988 to 1993, I worked as a writer, performer, director, and occasional video editor, for the syndicated sketch comedy program, Tonight @ 11:30. At its peak, T@11:30 was seen weekly in Boston, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles.

Those aren’t my glasses.
In 1998 I co-created the kid’s TV show Tori’s Toybox with Michael Hand.

I started doing photography and graphic design work in the 1990’s, creating album covers, posters, and promotional material.

My first published article was a profile piece sold to a British specialty magazine in April of 1999. I’ve continued to write reviews, articles, humor pieces, and others, for dozens of online services, and in print for The Hartford Advocate, The Litchfield Voice, Backstreet Entertainment Guide, and others.

In 1998 I collaborated with a group of friends to form Chimborazo Pictures. We produced Coventry, a black & white film about love and repression.

Coventry was recently added to the New York Public Library’s permanent film collection.

We followed that up in 2000 with another feature film, A Little Bit of Lipstick, a romantic comedy starring Mia Tyler and Soupy Sales.

Following the cancellation of Tonight @ 11:30, I moved the comedy production apparatus online. Making new content, while reinterpreting some of the old material, into what we called, Tonight on the Web.

Starting in 2005, I produced a number of different podcasts, including Tonight on the Radio, The Screening Room, and Rit & Mike’s Comedy Funhouse.

In 2008 I designed and created The Gamers Box, the first mobile video gaming service in Connecticut. It featured multiple gaming systems from Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo, with high-definition video displays, and customized gaming chairs. We operated from 2008-2017, serving thousands of gamers all over New England.

My first self-published book, The Bug, 1977.

I’ve been at this writing thing for a long time. And yes, I designed that cover too. Blue triangles in the corners were so hot in ’77.

Animal Rescue

My wife and I have taken many rescued animals into our home over the years. Currently we have six cats and a dog.

Take 3

Welcome to the latest version of the website.

I wanted to build something more streamlined and decided to remove all the old comedy stuff. If you’re looking for clips from Tonight @ 11:30 or Rit & Mike’s Comedy Funhouse, sadly they are gone, faded away into the ether of cyberspace.

This new site will focus more on my writing and publishing, all the activities with The Movie Bunker, and our houseful of rescued pets.
