Life takes us many places. It's a box of chocolates and a Hansel and Gretal trail of candy wrappers. I have filmed as an actor in The Happening, Invincible, The Lovely Bones, The Bounty Hunter, The Greek American, Bazookas, Limitless, TV's Its Always Sunny in Philly, Outlaw, New York, The Warrior, The Nail, Game Change, Cold Case, & commercial work includes The Philadelphia Eagles, Septa, Coors, Turbo Tax & Carnival Cruises. Freudian Slips spotlights irony in short story format.

Father's Day

I wish to take timeout from my wonderful Father's Day to make mention of those less fortunate.
Father's Day must feel more like a day of judgment than a holiday to all of the deadbeat fathers who shirk paying child support. Father's Day must feel hollow to all of the children who grow up not knowing even the identity of their own fathers. Father's Day must feel vacant for all of the single mothers raising children without a male role model.
While Father's Day means many things to many different people, chronic absenteeism can only make for a failing grade.

Hi Bro,

I don't know how the men who choose not to be in their kids' lives, go on living. I have a hard time, still, Monday thru Thursday. Thank God for cell phones and email.
