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 “The Scream Awards (Spike),” “The World Music Awards (ABC),” “The Producer’s Guild of America Awards,” and many others including Ryan Seacrest’s questions to the stars on E!’s “Live From The Red Carpet” specials. He is author/illustrator of the book, A Big Adventure In The Smallest State: A History of Rhode Island For All Ages and also writes for Venice Magazine, and the website for the animal rights organization, Arts For Animals Sake. 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 artist has shown in galleries from Maine to the British Virgin Islands. 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.
