I "caught the acting bug" in the late 1960's when I became involved in a Kansas City community theater. After 30 years at Bank of America and working as president of the local Realtors Association, I decided to revisit my love of acting. With my finance background, I have also been able to be on the opposite side of the camera as a film producer.  -I'm loving every minute!
