HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN ENTERTAINMENT AND PRODUCING?
I have been working in the film industry in various roles for just over 10 years. However, I started producing on a more serious level in December of 2014.
OF THE PROJECTS YOU’VE WORKED ON TO DATE, COULD YOU PLEASE TELL US WHICH PROJECTS WERE HIGHLIGHTS FOR YOU?
The last few years have been a bit of a whirlwind for me. Because I’ve produced an average of 4 film projects per year. Which I think is a major highlight in of itself! Each of these projects have been very valuable to me in their own way.
But if I had to pick, at the beginning of the year. I made a goal that I wanted to produce a web series. I now have two web series on the go.: IRL the Series (which I co-produced with the amazing Kristina Esposito, Mariah Owen and Amanda Jane Smith and can been seen online) and My Roommate’s an Escort (which will be released at the beginning of 2017)!
Both of the projects are very unique in their writing, casting and presentation and I’ve very proud of both of them.
