I am a former DJ, Bouncer, Bartender and Night Club manager in Ft Laud and Ohio. I've been a cab driver, flipped burgers, pizza maker, dishwasher, truck driver, puppeteer, martial arts instructor and Police Officer.
I provided the voice for radio commercials for the various haunted house projects and other Halloween functions and made numerous appearances as "The Count" hence the nickname.
I have been very active in community theater since the 80's and played every bad guy you can name.
Yes, Halloween is my favorite holiday. Yes,I have been collecting vampire/Dracula memorabilia and dressing in black long before it became stylish and had a name. You were not called Goth back then,you were called freak, fag or weirdo and many other endearing names.
If you could quote lines from movies and name the actors you were gay. If you could remember who played 3rd string tackle for the Miami Dolphins in 1977 and his stats, you were one of the boys.. I was never one of the boys.
Between my travels, involvement with the theater, haunted house project, and being a mobile DJ for parties and weddings I have wealth of stories I would like to share them.
Want to chat? If I am on I will respond.
My stories are a mix of what I have seen and experienced while others are pure fantasy.
Interests Vampires, real vampires. Not that Twilight or Vampire Diaries crap. Harley Davidson's, Poker Runs, Toy Runs, Las Vegas,Exploring Old Cemeteries and Mausoleums. I love Haunted Houses (real or man made).
People who judge someone on their personality and talent and not by how much they make a year or what college they attended.
People that know how to tell a story or a joke. Writers, Bloggers, Actors, Actresses, Dancers, Musicians and those that refuse to grow old mentally.

It had been another brutal self-imposed workout at the Chrome Anvil gym. As I head to the juice bar I nod to some of the other members that I recognize. "This shit was a lot easier thirty years ago," I tell them and they all agree. Most men of my age are...
It had been another long night at the dance club and the staff couldn't wait for the bright lights to be turned on signaling the end of the evening. The waitresses began to clean off the tables as the floor security ushered the patrons up the flight of st...
Recently I was reminded about the day I quit high school. Many of my friends believed the decision was made in haste, far from it. I spent a great deal of time on it. I even called a few potential employers and inquired if a high school diploma was mandat...
