Director Statement

It's always been clear to me that OR DIE TRYING is a story about passion and being true to yourself. Like the characters in the series, I too sacrificed so much to move to LA and turn my passion for film and storytelling into my life’s work. Directing OR DIE TRYING is like a full circle; where this dream of mine is now a reality and I can bring so much of my own experience to the table when giving life to these pages that Myah [Hollis] so skillfully penned.
