Meet the host

Ron Hall is an international art dealer whose long list of regular clients includes many celebrities and the Who’s Who of the Art World. Ron’s reality changed forever in 1998 as a result of a chance encounter with a homeless man who was threatening to kill everyone in sight in the homeless shelter where Ron had begun to volunteer two weeks earlier. 

This life-changing event featured on many television and radio shows, inspired Ron to write his first book “SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME” – a story of hope and redemption, it became a #1 New York Times platinum bestseller and dominated the list for three and a half years. 

Ron went on to write and produce the Paramount Pictures film, SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME, starring Oscar-Winning Actress Renee Zellweger, which can be found on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.  

In 2007, President Bush appointed Ron to the State Department Cultural Property Committee to advise the President on diplomatic matters regarding international art and antiquities. Ron served through December 2011. 

Ron’s newest book, “Workin’ Our Way Home,” and sequel to “Same Kind of Different As Me,” tells the hilarious and, at times, tragic tale of how Ron and Denver were thrown together to save each other.
