“The Inside Story”

Born January, 20, 1953, New York City; coincidentally the same night Dwight D. Eisenhower was elected President and Lucille Ball had her first child. 

Kindergarten was at Mrs. Browns School for Gifted Children, Queens, N.Y. I.Q. tests resulted was #136+. 

Forward: 1st Grade: 1958 my I.Q. was lowered on paper #130, I became the 1st Afro-Native American at the [U.N.I.S.] United Nations International School, N.Y. 

That first year an ear infection causing partial deafness forced me to read lips. When finally discovered an operation [manual puncture of outer ear to release the fluid and install an experimental hearing device] was done successfully. 

U.N. 2nd Grade: At age 6 developed “Ring Worm”, underwent a 2nd experimental operation [19 mins. of “X-Ray Scalp Epilating] burning off all my hair with extreme radiation. It killed the disease. When my hair finally grew back about 5 percent was gray. My grandfather called me his “Little Brave Eagle” and passed his Native name on to me. 

U.N. 3rd Grade: 1960 I got Ring Worm again this time I met Dr. Minzer [I had ever seen orange-metallic nail polish before that]. I was one of the 1st children to use “Terramycin” [Oxytetracycline] now the standard treatment for this disease. A car accident on the last day of 3rd grade ended my U.N.I.S. education.
Fast Forward: Theodore Roosevelt Jr. Sr. High School Home of: Monita Sleet, John Mackey, Julius [Dr. J] Irving, Howard Stern and later Eddie Murphy to name a few. 1967 joined the Junior NRA and the Roosevelt H.S. Rifle Team. 

I joined Civil Air Patrol 1968 to become a pilot. Also in 1968 thru 1970 attended R.O.T.C. at Hofstra University two afternoons a week [Handler: "Mr. P" Amazing Kreskin] I read @ 190+ wpm. 

1969 joined school wrestling team and by 1970 took 3rd in the N.Y. State Regional [Thanks to Mr. Addias & Mr. Boone [1968 U.S. Olympic Judo Champ]. Earning the nickname “Billy Blastoff” with  my first business “The Band”. I got a contract from Nassau County Dept. of Parks & Recreation playing the “Teen Canteen” in summer of 1970. 

 IRS Lesson #1: Give 1099                         forms to all band employees.
I had just turned down a scholarship to [MIT] Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “Pride & An Empty Sack” deciding my calling was to be a U.S.A.F. combat pilot; However the punctured eardrum decided otherwise. 

 1st year of the Vietnam Draft in 1970 my Selective Service was #100 designated 1H. 

I Entered SUNY Farmingdale in Audio Visual Communications: Photo Tech, Electrical Tech, Engineering, Advertising Art, Air Conditioning, Business Management, Printing Machines & Audio Visual. 

Graduated June 1971 and became the youngest & first Afro-Native American, Audio Visual Department staff member in SUNY college history. Thank you Sidney Goldman A/V Director Rossevelt Jr. Sr. High, Prof. Dom P. [a.k.a. Mr. Wizard], Dr. R. Boman [a.k.a. Mr. Kodak Moment] & Frank F. [a.k.a. Mr. Jetson] and all those professors who believed in my abilities.

1974 I was set-up when Gordon Glass [my mothers U.N. co-worker Oscar Glass] gave my name after his rape arrest. He married the victim from Springfield College, Mass. The dirty little secret was finally exposed when in 2005 he was finally arrested and imprisoned on the open warrant by Massachusetts Corrections. He and his two brothers Leon [FedEx] & Stanley Glass [minister?] are well known to police as a.k.a. “Rape Brothers”. I suspect they were protected by Derek Partee [Nassau County Cop] who also attended Springfield College. 

Massachusetts Corrections: Gordon Glass [a.k.a. Robert English] , Springfield College, Springfield, Mass. Victim Kim Clark [Roosevelt, N.Y.] East Falmouth, Mass.

Since 1974 how many women have been raped in the United States or elsewhere by these men? What kind of people looked the other way all these years? 
1975-76 interested in “Studio Recording” work I attended SUNY Old Westbury two nights [Non-matriculating] taking music theory with Jazz musicians Richard Harper & Ken McIntire. 

I met two people that became instrumental contacts within the radio industry Kim [Kadisha Omar] Jarvis of WBAI AM [Public Radio] New York City & Frank Russell at WLIR FM, Garden City, N.Y. Sadly she was senselessly murdered in 1976 at Brooklyn College leaving behind a son. IRS Lesson #3: Always cash contract checks at the contractors bank to prevent insufficient fund penalties.

By 1977 my new business concept DANCEFANTASY combined a cub experience with portable DJ sound adding Lights, Theatrical Effects, Jazz & Interpretive Dancers including Roller & Break Dancers in various venues. My market was country clubs, catering houses, charitable fund raisers, restaurants, special events, business parties, colleges & universities. 

That same year I was introduced by a college professor to BESTEK Theatrical, Babylon, N.Y. After two years at BESTEK I would be contracted seasonally by Ken Longert Productions [Go-To-Guy]. From this meeting I’d do staging & lighting for all the major fashion designers in NYC under contract for almost 20 years. IRS Lesson #4: Always, Always, Always keep your receipts. 

Needing some  diversity I contracted a young Caucaqsion Luke "Skywalker" Frey who played salsa, Meringue & Disco in 1977. At a trubute party in Glen Cove that year I Met Doug Davenport. & Donna K. "Double Dose'' and found that donna was the olny female portable DJ on long Island. Dougs musical styl was similar to mine and since they had their own sound system and transportation I contracted them to work with a new "DJ Battle" concept.

1977 I took a grant position to document a progressive education program and teach photography at the Fiedel School, Glen Cove N.Y. It was a teaching position with photographer benefits. These children were gifted, some with IQ's above 240. This challenge proved to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my working career. Especially when my first meeting with the Administrator Mrs. Roslyn Fiedel yielded “shock and awe” when after examining the developing equipment I told her it was junk and nothing could be done contaminated trays and rusted equipment. 

A deal was struck that if I found suitable used equipment they would buy me what I needed. This agreement yielded a program she would not forget. [Note: This school was just down the road from the Russian Embassy on Desoris Lane]. IRS Lesson #5: A Sound business agreement is the art of negotiation.

In 1978 opportunity at JFK Int'l Airport I got assigned working for Triangle Ramp Services 

in the international terminal servicing: Lufthansa, Air France, KLM, Alitalia, SAS, Sabina, Austrian Air, Royal Jordanian, Icelandair, Air Jamaica, LaTour, Varig, Viasa, Aero Mexico, Air Afrique, China & Korean Air and in cargo at Evergreen & KLM. 

Working closely with the “Chase Teams” I certified on Tugs, Belts, Victory Truck, Steps, PL Pallet Loader, Multiple Tow Dollies & Baggage Trucks. Learning in addition tracking systems of Lockheed L-1011, McDonnell Douglas DC-10, Boeing 707/ 747, Airbus A300/ A310, Military C-130/ C-141. I left after the Air Jamaica DC-9 accident in the international terminal that winter.

Flashback #1: 1960 John F. Kennedy had been elected President, I was impressed by his naval career especially in saving the life of one of his men, by towing him to safety after their PT boat was rammed by a Japanese destroyer during WWII. My uncle Grafton Burrell was a State Police officer assigned to protect the “Honey Fitz” a reconditioned PT Boat moored under a bridge on the Patomac River. On my birthday he took me and my father to see the boat. Although I was not allowed on board I will always remember the high gloss, varnished hull of this amazing vessel. It taught me there is great honor and pride in service to this country.
On 12, 24, 1991 approximately 11:30 AM at 2045 McDonald Ave, Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, N.Y. After driving 14 hours X 7 Days for 90 Days straight not one check paid was honored by his bank. I became the victim of a racially motivated attack by owners Louis Balzano [a.k.a. Raging Bull] and his son Joseph of Always Auto Leasing of New York Inc., who owed me $380.00. This damaged lumbar, thoracic and cervical areas of my spine. Although contract to Child Welfare he had no Workman’s Compensation [WBC Case #09213258] insurance, in violation of NYC Executive Order #50. At the first hearing his lawyer presented papers showing over $144K owed. NYC never cancelled his Slone Kettering, Child Welfare or any other municipal contracts. This contract was over $10 million dollars, billing $32.50 per driver-hr X 24Hrs X 365 days. Whether his suspected former NYC police status of his corrupt criminal associations he was never prosecuted regardless of the 911 call placed at F train station [Kings Highway @ McDonald Ave.] approx. 11:45 AM & 12:00 Noon on Christmas Eve. IRS Lesson #9: Never work for a business that doesn’t pay in full or on time.

Flashback #2: 1956 Catholic Nursery School, Queens, N.Y. Sister EB would slap us about our heads when she reprimanded us, on many occasions punishment was to stay in a dark attic for hours. She also kept a little baby upstairs. At that age I didn’t know how to tell my mother what was happening, I would just cry. When I finally told, my mother came with the authorities and they closed the school. I made a promise then never allow any children to be abused by an adult.

10 years of finger pointing neither Always Auto Leasing or NYC paid for any damages. Over 25 former drivers found; had been similarly attacked, the African [in witness protection] was owed $4,000.00, shot 4 times in the back and dumped behind a factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. To date Always Auto Leasing a.k.a. ‘The King” Car Washes, Starcruiser [Stillwell-Canarsie “Coney Island”], Brownstone [Brownsville-East New York], Sheepshead Express [Sheepshead Bay], Always Dependable [Bronx], Always Reliable [Kew Gardens-Parkway Village], Always Available [Rego Park-Ridgewood], Always Eveready [Forest Hills-Cypress Hills], Always/ Jo-Don Transport [Bensonhurst-Bay Ridge], 

His Limousine & Ambulance services in Queens, Brooklyn & the Bronx still has questionable vehicle safety issues, tax stamps, inspection and potential insurance fraud. I became homeless and forced onto Welfare “Social Slavery”, for almost 10 years in NYC. IRS Lesson #10: Don’t involve yourself in shady or the potential RICO matters of corrupt businesses. 

In 1974 my first child was born and I had to live up to my responsibilities as a father. Taking her mother to family court 

I gave her my name and made arrangements to pay child support. Because of the dangers at work I had the money sent payroll deduction. 

In 1975 started a second business with Julius Franklin [college friend] Free Love DJ’s and found neither the name or my partner profitable. In addition people wanted free services. IRS Lesson #2: Always write contracts and get a deposit of ½ at the signing. 

In 1985 working at Educational Technologies, Merrick, N.Y. I successfully bid a $10 million dollar contract for NYC school system in 1986. I was denied the promised 5% commission; reluctantly I took 1.5% and resigned. The next day in Mineola I filed business papers for DANCEFANTASY-Futurevision International. Re-organizing my DJ business Futurevision became the parent company as an A/ V consulting firm. IRS Lesson #6: Never work for people who don’t keep their word.

Summer 1986 contracted with Bob See at See Factor, NYC for the “Bi Centennial Celebration”. 

That same year I also worked for Bruce & Bruce Stage Scenery, NYC who produced the 1986 “Max Headroom” Coca Cola commercials; most famous for Super Bowl XXI where Phil Sims got his “MVP” award. Later that year Next Weekend Productions contracted me for both Genesis and Madonna World Tour load-outs at Evergreen Cargo, JFK airport. Both tours headlined at the Meadowlands Arena in N.J. IRS Lesson #7: Business is the art of spending money to make money.

In 1989 working for Philly at AP&R Printing, NYC I registered Shadow “Courier” System. Bonded I delivered bank checks: Amalgamated, Merchants & Chemical Banks/ trading houses: Paine Webber, Kidder Peabody, etc. He also printed menus/ guest checks for some [Little Italy] restaurants Casa Balla, PJ’s [Peligrinos] of Little Italy & Vincent’s Clam House to name a few. 
He had a heart attack in April that year and the business closed. IRS Lesson #8: We are owed nothing more than we have invested 

In July that same year I contracted with [Tekline Courier, NYC] who had the entire Citi Bank contract: BOC’s and electronics for installations or repairs. Other contracts: Deloite, Haskins & Sells [LOTTO], Readers Digest, Trading houses, Port Athority of NY & NJ. 

Late 1990 along with 1,500 other people acting as a foot messenger [Kangaroo Courier, NYC] under contract after Ronald Regan’s assassination attempt by John Hinkley. Contracts: Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank AG, Fuji Bank, HSBC, Hong Kong Bank, Merrill Lynch, Manufacturers Hanover, AMEX & NASDEQ. 
​In 1993 to force the federal government to address my 17 year identity fraud [FTC Ref #1979409] case I volunteered to go inside MCC, N.Y. after the 1993 Trade Center Bombing for the U.S. Air Force. After 5 months over 200 arrests of a.k.a. Robert English’s was affected in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, N.J., N.Y., Massachusetts, North & South Carolina.

Flashback #3: 1983 Hunter College I was hired on a grant to help upgrade their AV services on paper. In reality I was hired to clean up the mess of a mediocre AV [Ray Nutkis] Director. 

His agenda didn’t include a minority supervisor and it was made clear from day one. My duties were repairs, AV services, auditorium set-ups while my counterpart sat in his office and read most of the time. I finally realized why my mother stressed being better than my co-workers. Every up-grade attempt was diminished by Ray’s negative feedback. After 10 months I gave notice that I wouldn’t stay another year. That is how I felt about the FBI complacency of my Identity fraud case. IRS Lesson #11: Never sacrifice your professional reputation for another individual’s incompetence. 

Between 1994 and 1995 I testified to congress through Dan Frisa, Nassau County, 4th District, House of Representative member about the inadequate security measures of the NYC Police Department, the potential for more terrorist attacks and some security lessons learned from the Vietnam War and how their implementation could save many innocent lives on Long Island. Since 1996 I have maintained direct communication with contacts at the defense department [Title 50 U.S.C. Internal Security of 1950] of any potential internal security problems. 

In 1996 bombing at B.A.T.F. H.Q. in Oklahoma City by Timothy McVeigh deliberately killed many innocent children some were Native American. 

Flashback #4: A woman [Brigitte Sanfiorenzo-Bellittiere] I befriended in 1983 while at Hunter College acquired illegally a boo I retrieved from RR Bowker, NYC under inter-agency contract titled “Covert Operations In Nicaragua A CIA Manual” This tell-all book outlined political assassinations, dis-information etc. she married Frank [alias] Bellettiere 12-24-1983 in NYC and they both disappeared. To date tactics from and copies of that book has been found in various drug busts around the country.

 IRS Lesson #12: What is the meaning of life?...Don’t mess with the Feds; They always ask for the death penalty, the best you can hope for is life imprisonment.

Also 1996 the bombing of Khobar Towers, U.S.A.F. Base, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia would shock our nation again. However there was an Airman Brian W. McVeigh stationed as security there. Who was Brian W. McVeigh?, Is he the real source of the bombing? and Was he directly related to Oklahoma City through Timothy McVeigh? 
My DANCEFANTASY trademark was spinning records on my fingers and wearing white gloves..like Mickey Mouse".

In 2002 I came to the Pittsburgh area because of a dying relative. After years of working in the NYC tri-state area I'd never been robbed, beaten or mugged.
In August 2002 I was mugged on the North side by a 280+ lb Afro-American over near the Martin Luther King elementary school.
I resorted to living in this 52" projector TV box for almost five months including the Tornado that hit the Southside in August 2003. This was the 2nd time I became homeless.
Almost one year to the day I was attacked by a gang of white street kids on 18th street between Carson and Sara streets on the last day of the Carson Street festival. Both times I was coming home from work. When I left Pittsburgh I vowed to never be a victim of a violent crime ever again. I went back to Niagara Falls, N.Y. in September 2003.
Later that month I moved into a two bedroom apartment in Niagara Falls on the corner of Niagara and 10th streets. It took a little while for me to add the custom finishes to the apartment which included: new wall-to-wall carpet in the living room & large bedroom, tile floors in the dining room & small bedroom, paint and trim in the bathroom,  a hi-boy counter in the kitchen and a vent-free gas heater in the dining room. 
​401-407 10th street is a nine unit, two bedroom, apartment building in the downtown area of Niagara Falls.

This old charmer faced the Falls and had a perfect view of the fireworks show every weekend from the Canadian side. When the 600 room hotel was built for Seneca-Niagara Casino the fabulous view of the fiber optic Rainbow Waterfall became a daily treat in addition to the summer weekend fireworks.
