I am a stage and camera actor. I have appeared on stage in the Philadelphia area and in Hawaii. I grew up in Los Angeles where I was a TV and film child actor. My child acting "claim to fame" was being Marsha's date, Alan Anthony, in the "Brace Yourself" episode of The Brady Bunch. After a 40-year hiatus, I finally returned to network TV in the new Hawaii Five-0.

Short-term Rental Fight

I am also involved in a fight against illegal short-term rentals in my condo building and in my neighborhood.
