Played quarterback on his high-school football team.

Sold his first script to Star Trek: Next Generation by slipping it to an assistant of Gene Roddenberry's during a tour of the set. The assistant read it, liked it and recommended it to an agent, who in turn submitted it through the proper channels---only to have it ignored. Seven months later, an executive producer read it, liked it and bought it.
Sold a second script to Next Generation, then joined the show's writing staff on a week-to-week contract. A few months later, he was given an actual contract and made story editor.
