Doc the Gaffer is an entertainment news commentator, spokes model and a lifelong slave to the entertainment industry. His website IntheBackRow.com was launched in 1998 as a place for movie fanatics by movie fanatics. Originally from Long Beach, California and impassioned by film and theatre Doc attended UCLA film school in 1995. It is rumored that while helping edit John Singleton's Higher Learning, Doc inserted footage of UCLA men’s basketball coach Jim Harrick with a secretary from the athletic department. Soon after the incident both Doc and Harrick were asked to leave. In 1996 Doc found work as a projectionist for AMC Theatres and later became the manager of two megaplexs. In 2005 still wanting to make movies rather than screen them for others, Doc returned to the motion picture business. In 2008 Doc received an offer from an old high school friend Les Michaels to help with a documentary about legendary radio personality UFO Phil. Doc moved from California to Spokane Washington to work on the project. After arriving he found himself acting as co-host for a live web cast UFO Phil Live from the Bunker. Shortly after the UFO Phil movie finished shooting the bunker was heavily damaged by snow and was abandoned. Doc continues to reside in Spokane, Washington and hosts his own live webcast In the Back Row.
