I was born in Lorain, Ohio during 1977, and have basically lived in or around the same city all my life. There was a year where I lived near Akron, but that was while I was away at college. In the years that I have been alive, the city has grown very little due to the fact that a recession has killed much of the industry here. It is now said that the unemployment rate is at an all time low, mostly because people got sick of being unemployed and decided to move away.
A few actors, such as Martin Moll (Roseanne & Sabrina the Teenage Witch), and a famous writers, such as Toni Morrison, have lived in or around this city at one point. The family Silverman stopped here for a few generations in between moving from New York to California. I should know, my grandmother was a Silverman. The Silvermans included Beverly Sills, Fred Silverman, Jonathan Silverman, Sarah Silverman and Laura Silverman, all which are involved in the entertainment business. Other parts of my family stretch back to the 1700’s in this area. I have been told that we are related to Ulysees Simpson Grant and some native American tribe on my paternal grandmother’s side of the family.
My father, Russ Haslage Jr. is the President of the International Federation of Trekkers (IFT), the official Gene Roddenberry fan organization. Gene Roddenberry co-created IFT with my father back in 1984. He is amongst the top people in the Star Trek universe. They say that if you never heard of Russ Haslage, then you do not really know much about Star Trek. My mother is a lead shift nurse, LPN first class, at a local nursing home.
