Mini Bio (1)

Born and raised in Milwaukee Wisconsin, Wozniak grew up in the same neighborhood that decades earlier produced legendary actors Spencer Tracy and Pat O'Brien. A graduate of The University of Wisconsin, he now makes his home in Louisiana where he is part of growing film industry of the new "Hollywood South". Wozniak is an art aficionado and film history buff which has led him to amassing a rather large collection of memorabilia and books on the subject.

Trivia (5)

Gave up notions of a professional sports career after a brief tryout with the Baltimore Orioles. "Instead of me, they signed some kid with a strange name like Pippen, Nippin, or something, he probably never made it". (Cal Ripkin).
Favorite actors are Humphrey Bogart and Vincent Price. Wozniak befriended Price through his interest in film and art and was a contributor to a book on Price, "The Complete Films of Vincent Price" by Lucy Chase Williams.
A huge fan of Mystery, Noir, and Hard Boiled Crime, Wozniak became chummy with the legendary Mike Hammer author Mickey Spillane who after seeing Wozniak dressed as a detective wrote, "You'd do great as Hammer! If the bullets didn't get you, the dolls would!". Wozniak has a large collection of personally inscribed first editions from the late author.
A small arms enthusiast, Wozniak can field strip a Thompson Sub-Machine Gun blindfolded.
Best advice toward acting came from something Robert Mitchum once told me, "When it's six o'clock, we all go home", meaning that in the end, film and acting, it's just a job, it's not who you are.
