I’m An MS Activist

Blog Summary

You might call my wife, Kristi, and I a “Hollywood” power couple. I spent six years in the 80s (of my 20+ years in the industry) working on one of the most popular sitcoms of all time, “The Cosby Show.” Kristi is a professional voice-over artist, best known as “the voice of time” on the Food Network’s “Iron Chef America.” But… we no longer live in Los Angeles. In 2007, seeking a place that was quieter, slower and more family-friendly, we packed up our four kids in the car and moved to Spokane. Since I had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1997 and the LA heat had the potential to exacerbate my symptoms, we were also seeking cooler weather – we found it!Immediately after my diagnosis, I took up video editing (a “sitting” profession) out of fear that I’d be dependent on a wheelchair within the coming year. I still do some editing and contribute to three video companies, but more and more I’m focused on raising my kids, fishing and speaking about what it’s like having MS at various local National MS Society events. I am not dependent on a wheelchair – I’m proud to say that my MS has been successfully controlled by treatment.
