February 4, 2019 - An Hour with Actor and Author, Patrick Kilpatrick


An hour with Patrick Kilpatrick is a glimpse into the world of Hollywood greats,  the art of villainry, stunts,  the scenes behind the scenes. He talks about his foray from writing to the silver screen, who he encountered along the way, from Sean Connery to Tom Cruise to Naomi Watts.  Sit back and enjoy a truly entertaining and enlightening show.

Patrick Kilpatrick's anticipated two-part memoir, DYING FOR LIVING – Sins & Confessions of a Hollywood Villain & Libertine Patriot (published by Boulevard Books), offers a searing and scandalous literate look behind the actor's unconventional upbringing, political misadventures in journalism, a successful career as the entertainment industry's go-to antagonist, and juicy unprecedented celebrity tales - all the while intricately weaving in brazen patriotism and unparalleled humor.

"Although elegantly revealed, Dying For Living rips through social norms without regard to sensibility or political correctness," explains Kilpatrick. "Plot lines - murderous bi-polar assaults by an adulterous mother, privileged education amidst pastoral splendor, and American Revolution patriotism. Also included, bi-racial affairs and incendiary politics… not to mention, a near fatal car accident, motorcycle crashes, and a global vision for 21st Century America".

Having dominated the silver screen for three decades with appearances in more than 170 hit films and television programs as a lead actor, producer, screenwriter, director, 'Movie Black Belt' and entertainment teacher, Kilpatrick's latest role of acclaimed author is an exhilarating progression for the action-industry titan. With a covertly assembled treasure trove of insider intel gleaned through this accomplished Hollywood resume, the genteel 6'2" star deploys wicked insights to provocative use throughout these penetrating memoirs.
"Almost universally, all great movies and books possess romance, eroticism, war in its many forms, redemption, laughter, pathos, death, tragedy and action," Kilpatrick continues. "For those of you lusting, salivating, wishing and hoping for unvarnished, inglorious, and heroic behind-the-scenes elements of Hollywood, I boldly refer you to Dying For Living".

A cinema hero with a heart, Kilpatrick will be donating a percentage of his book sales to the Disabled American Veterans, a 100-year-old organization devoted to servicing disabled warriors.

The Kindle Edition of Volume 1 of DYING FOR LIVING – Sins & Confessions of a Hollywood Villain & Libertine Patriot, is available to purchase now on Amazon.

Kaz Matsune

Breakthrough Sushi


Kaz Matsune discovered his passion for cooking at a young age. Though he was born and raised in Western Japan, Kaz’s inspiration came from watching Graham Kerr cook on the famous TV show “Galloping Gourmet.” Kerr’s enthusiasm, lightheartedness and genuine appreciation for good food made a lasting impression on young Kaz.
In college Kaz studied graphic design and excelled in his field, even designing posters for major Hollywood movies but the kitchen still beckoned him. He continued to cook avidly and learn all he could about the world of food in his own kitchen. A friend over for dinner one night commented that Kaz applied the same artistry and attention to detail to his cooking as he did to his designs, and that’s when Kaz knew he would pursue his passion and become a chef.

Ever eager for a challenge, Kaz decided to tackle one of the most challenging and artful paths a chef can take: sushi. He spent years behind sushi bars, at first simply watching (“learning with his eyes”), then practicing tirelessly until he had mastered the skills and nuances. As a sushi chef, Kaz developed dishes for San Francisco's first organic Japanese restaurant, Minako, before moving on to Ozumo and then the famed Fort Mason restaurant Greens. In 2008 Kaz started teaching sushi classes for professional chefs, as well as private clients, and in 2012 Breakthrough Sushi was born - the first and only sustainable team building sushi company in the US.

Since then, Kaz has taught over 10,000 sushi lovers, held lessons at the Culinary Institute of America at Copia and led team building classes for some of the Bay Area’s top companies, including Google, Facebook, Oracle, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, Verizon and Citibank. He’s appeared in videos for Survey Monkey and Grammarly, as well as ad campaigns for Adobe and Eventbrite. Kaz’s writing is featured on Quora, The Wireless, Huffington Post, Slate and Apple News and he has published three books on sushi. The most recent, How I Became a Sushi Chef, is a memoir of his culinary journey.
