Where were you born and raised? Peoria, IL

If you attended college ... What was the name of the school? What was your major? University of Illinois.
Bachelor and Master of Architecture.

What is/was your occupation? How long have you been in this profession? Architect, when and if I can find work.
I graduated in 1981, came to the Bay Area directly, started my first job.

What inspired you to produce your own TV series? I was unemployed, staying up late on Saturday nights watching the creature features, including Saturday Fright Special on Marin TV. After some months I actually read the announcements, found out how cheap membership was, and attended an orientation.
