Sheriff Bob in "Bloody Bill"




Ever since getting a short story published in eighth grade in Michigan, Bob's romance with words hasn't quit -- so far.

At age seventeen he swapped Grosse Pointe for Detroit and started working as a journalist when the Motor City's rock 'n roll heyday held rich pickings for his work in the early pages of Creem Magazine. A stint in the legendary Newsreel organization gave him a yen to make more movies.

A lifelong fiddler, he found that the Great Lakes' traditional music yielded a hidden trove of good stories for a PBS series. Several hundred grant proposals later, he hired Jane to run camera. Enough funds came from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Michigan Council for the Arts, a Ford Foundation and others for he and Jane to finish the series. Then they got married and moved back to Jane's birthplace, Los Angeles.

Since then he's spent almost a decade at Universal Home Entertainment as a distribution expert, put in a stint as an executive story consultant for a major literary agency, directed some music videos, produced a slew of documentaries and helped produce some feature films. He rides horses every free moment, farms often and mixes it up over water rights in local politics.

He's a member of the writers section in the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Bob's acting debut was in "Bloody Bill" as a sheriff, astride his wife's late champion cowpony, Banjo's Fancy Miss. They both hit their mark first take, every scene. Neither looked at the camera.
