Welcome to NeedToVent!
My name is Robert A. Nowotny and I was born in New Braunfels, Texas on July 4th, 1948. Although my life-long dream to become a dirigible pilot never materialized, I did earn my private pilot license and have owned several single-engine aircraft over the years. Among other things that you might find interesting is that my one and only at-bat in "The Friendly Confines" of Wrigley Field resulted in me grounding out to the second baseman while facing Hall-of-Fame pitcher Ferguson Jenkins. I have been kissed not once, not twice, but four times by the "The Spider Woman" herself, the fabulous Sonia Braga. And although my recent campaign efforts to be elected to the Texas State Legislature failed, I can declare with certainty that I wasn't your average, pasty-faced, old white guy running for office. But perhaps I am best known for producing five independently financed feature motion pictures and a number of documentaries, including one Emmy Award winner. And so when I am not flying or seeking kisses or political office or producing another film project, I spend my time "venting." Such is the fate of this reasonably intelligent human being in today's world.
