WRITER // DIRECTOR
October, I launced my first production company.
I found myself frustrated while studying Meisner technique. This on-camera class used advanced scene study on a weekly basis. Week after week I struggled to find (not just my classmates) but my FRIENDS my LOVED ONES being represented. I combed scripts both award winning and hidden gems but retained a sense of longing.
As we began to sign with agents a new task arrived. Footage for our casting profiles! We grew while working on indie films and student films. Still, hit or miss when it came to showcasing our "magic".
Why? Because I believe we each have stories only we can tell. We must tell them to spark change and we must do it together.
So, I did gathered my group of fellow actors in a boardroom and we began writing. Writing has served as an active ingredient in my development.
I'm currently in pre-production for my first feature "Don't @ Grief" and my new series coming to Amazon "Counselors, Anonymous".
