Greg Dinallo began his wide-ranging career in the professional design world in Manhattan, where his photography and museum exhibit design projects gradually evolved into film making endeavors. When one of his film shorts won an award at the Chicago Film Festival in 1973, Dinallo was seized with the urge to move to Los Angeles, where he launched a successful second career as a writer for television and film. By 1983 his success in Hollywood enabled him to embark on his third career, as a novelist, which he pursued concurrently with television writing. Mr. Dinallo is the author of nine novels.
With his son and daughter-in-law pursuing busy careers as lawyers in public service, Mr. Dinallo and his wife Gloria now reside in in Greenwich Village, where they dote on their two grandchildren.
