BiographyTalbotton, Georgia, USA
Mike lived in Los Angeles from 1974 through 1992, when he moved home to Georgia to search, in earnest, for a daughter given up for adoption, by her young, unwed mother in 1963. Mike had been attending the Iniversity of Georgia as a senior, when he met the pretty freshman. Unfortunatly, the girls parents would not allow the young couple to wed because Mike was Jewish, and they thought him a "rogue"...which he admits to being, at the time. After twenty-nine years of worry and concern, Mike left his career to do the near impossible and find his daughter. Read more... he succeded. From that experience, he has written a feature film screenplay, Letters To Myself, which is in development by his company, Bootleg Island Entertainment, and a televisions series, Adoption Agency, which is also in development. Mike worked on the television series, In the Heat of the Night, and on stage, at the Springer Opera House, (State Theatre of Georgia), during the time. He has written three other screenplays, and has revived his acting careen, in the Southeast. As he likes to say, "The only way to predict the future is to create it."
