He began his career at Dick Powell's Four Star Television with series "The Rogues" with Charles Boyer and David Niven, and later "The Big Valley" with Barbara Stanwyck. During that time he enlisted and served in the Army Reserve. Most of his career was as an independent producer in motion pictures and television with such shows "Eleanor and Franklin: The White House Years" as well as films "Under Fire," "Three Men and a Baby," "Falcon and the Snowman," "Catch 22" and many more.
