Many people have asked me, what part of production do I like best, directing, writing, producing, or acting? … or even Post Production?? (the toughest part may I add).
My answer is always the same; I simply love being creative, and the challenge of making a movie come alive. Each one of those areas has it’s own set of challenges, and fun times of course. So I love them all individually, or collectively. I can either just do one facet, such as just direct on a project, just act, or even just write (which I have done several times) or all of them. I have been told by high level industry execs, that I have the skill of “50 guys”. I don’t know if I would agree, but maybe two or three guys lol. I just like to think of it as a way to get the job done, and help the team make a cool movie.
How much time you are willing to invest and learn those skills, and experience the ups and downs is what it boils down to. Becoming battle tested, and getting better at your craft. I would like to master all of them, and don’t mind doing just one of them, whatever the team needs me to do. It’s that simple.
See you at the movies!

I rarely care about what “hate reviews” say. Most of the time it’s just some dough-bag that is simply “jellies” of hard work, and can’t seem to get off Google or FB to do something about it… so as the old saying goes; “Frankly my dear I don’t give a damn” about your review! It’s fuel for all of us hard working folks who are trying to inspire people.
Its NOT okay to negatively bash art. I was just reading all the mean, bizarre, and bashing reviews of film such as The God Father?, Scarface?, Empire Strikes Back??, Thor?, Guardians of the Galaxy?, and yes my film Sinbad The Fifth Voyage???
It’s couch potato internet haters that are given a key to post whatever they want on public sites that make the reviews skewed and worthless, if you had some (as my homeboys would say) “balls” you would be doing something other than relieving yourself on VERY hard work, from VERY talented artist. So keep them coming… it’s fuel for us.
Have a nice day.
Thats all I have to say about that.

Being a person that deeply cares about the environment, as well as being an advocate of green technology. Coupled with the fact that the Los Angeles DWP has an outdated administration, and there seems to be no plan for rolling out Solar options in Los Angleles. I have decided to convert our house into full solar energy!! I am very excited about this and will plan on sharing everything I know and learn on how to do this with you all!! I highly advise everyone start thinking about this. Europe is way ahead of us on alternative green energy!
