WHO ARE YOU?
I'm a television producer, currently living/working in New York City. Two of my biggest passions in life are eating and traveling; I'm also a photography enthusiast. So creating this website seemed liked a natural extension of these interests. Plus, like most in Hollywood, I harbor creative aspirations. HOLLYWOOD GOURMAND is my outlet.
Oh, so this is just another food/travel blog?
What HAPPENED TO "Distant Hire"?
I thought I was being exceptionally clever when naming my original blog DISTANT HIRE. After all, I started it to document my adventures on the road working as a "distant hire" production crew member. But fifteen years into my career, I traded in the freelance lifestyle for a cushy executive gig in Los Angeles. Suddenly, my moniker was inaccurate. People also seemed confused by the title, thinking I was operating a job search website. A re-brand seemed in order. Even if I'm back on distant location.
I also write screenplays. So there may be occasional rants about the creative process or my latest case of writers block. But mostly it will be pictures of food.
