Xaque (pronounced “Zack”) Gruber’s first TV writing credit came with reuniting the cast of his favorite 80s soap “Dynasty” for the 2006 CBS special “Dynasty Reunion: Catfights & Caviar.” Since then, he’s written many other television and film projects as well as hundreds of pieces for HuffPost. He is author/illustrator of the book, A Big Adventure In The Smallest State: A History of Rhode Island For All Ages. When Xaque’s hands aren’t writing, they’re modeling. They have been seen in ads for Target Stores and Joe’s Crab Shack Restaurants. Sometimes his hands are painting. His fine art has been shown in galleries from Maine to Los Angeles. Through the 1990s, Xaque taught art in New England to thousands of schoolchildren. In 1999, he was nominated for Massachusetts Art Teacher Of The Year. He still teaches art all around the country.
