THE DESERT TRAIL (TWENTYNINE PALMS) -- After high school, Tucker studied acting at College of the Desert, where he had the lead part in four plays over the course of two years. His life was interrupted by the Vietnam War. He served as a journalist before returning to life in the theater. He attended San Jose State and San Francisco State before landing in Los Angeles. “I began directing plays in LA and the South Bay as well as writing theatre reviews for newspapers in the beach cities, all the while managing independent bookstores,” he said.
