I have two distinct lives. One in the trenches of low-budget film and television, the other in professional gambling. Because of the feast-or-famine nature of show business I need a reliable income... gambling. So here you will read about both worlds. Enjoy!

Eliot comes across as someone who just craves attention. When the AP community wouldn't give him the attention he needed, he decided to seek it from the casino-side of the table. Eliot reminds us all of a character from the old Looney Tunes cartoons...it was a hilbilly who ran around Porky Pig say "I know something you don't know! I know something you don't know!" Oddly, the cartoon is more than fitting in this instance.

Some would say that Eliot personifies the adage, "Those who can't do, teach." But really he has just found another way to suck money from the casino tit that better fits his personality. It is unfortunate that his method of profiting from casinos costs players money.
