ABOUT OBSERVATIONS FROM THE DOOR
I worked as the door manager of a 2,400 capacity nightclub for a period of 20 years. During that time I sadly witnessed a lot of hostile and violent actions including active shooters. After one such shooting, I was compelled to write a book on how to create a safer nightlife.
Observations from the Door is that book. Currently out of print. The book was published based on events that occurred in the club I worked at and others in the Cleveland area. Time has passed since I published observations. While the violence continues, the clubs that I reference no longer exist.
I feel that the message and purpose of the book are still valid. I have been working on a revised edition that takes away the localization and "past" aspect of the book and write one that is for mainstream reading.
If you are interested in the revised version, I can add you to the mailing list at
