Director Statement

During the lockdown in New York what was a working actor to do? Well this one went inside himself and started to take pen to paper. I walked the neighborhood I call home, Kingsbridge the Bronx. I was taken in by the daily drama unfolding on our streets, in stores, schools, small business and churches .I wanted to tell these stories that my neighbors were going through, a mini war with countless casualties. The episodes are scripted inspired by reality, historic fiction if you will. Professional Sag Aftra actors were cast as well as a wonderful crew. I took all the knowledge of my many years on sets, grabed a camera, called up my friends and went to work. I became casting director, writer, director, set location manager and craft service chef. Head to grindstone the episodes keep coming as the stories still unfold around me. I turned lemons into lemonade and I hope I have honored those people who have given so much during this pandemic.
