As a graduate of The School of Visual
Arts, Doug is proficient in multiple mediums. He
spent his young adult life traveling the world,
enjoying the arts, food, and lifestyles of other
cultures. Doug inadvertently found himself in dire
straights and financial despair. It led him and
his pet monkey, Dr. Jones, into the most treacherous
jungles, becoming involved in the dangerous and
controversial "Exotic, Endangered, and Venomous
Animal Trade." Upon his return to the States
and a brief sabbatical at The Saint Lou E. Home
for the Criminally Insane, Athletic and Drama Center
and Sunset Center for the Proliferation of Veterinary
Hygiene in St. Paul, M.S., he was discovered at
the local bar training rats to find spare change
by philanthropist Larry Collins. After shots, karaoke,
and a night of drunken conversation, Doug was hired
by Larry as Steppin' Out's artist, graphic designer,
and web editor. Doug still buys his morning coffee
with his rat money until this day.
For more than two decades Larry Collins
has been the commander-in-chief behind what has
become the most successful weekly entertainment
magazine in the New Jersey and New York City area.
What started as nothing more than a dream in 1988,
Larry along with his wife Pamela laid down the foundation
for Steppin Out from his parents basement. Against
all odds, the loving couple developed a unique and
well respected magazine that has often been imitated
but never out done. To this day, Larry's dedication
to both the readers and of course the hundreds of
loyal advertisers who have believed in Steppin Out
since the beginning remains his top priority.
