George Saunders was born in San Rafael, California, in 1959. He became a professional ballet dancer with the San Francisco Ballet, and then later danced with other companies in South America and Europe. He attended NYU and Juilliard, working in summer stock and Broadway shows, touring eventually with On Your Toes, starring Leslie Caron. He now acts, writes and directs in Los Angeles.
George is very proud to have worked with the Navy Seals through the Coronado Special Warfare Center and the men and women of the U.S. Army and the Marines during his involvement with Military Films. The research for those documentaries, and his connection as the writer for those narratives, is dedicated to these fine people who put their lives on the line for their country every day.
