Always working on projects that are bigger than ourselves
I caught the acting bug back in 2007, received training from multiple sources and found my self on numerous TV shows on the ID channel, Veep, House of Cards. Blessed with being an actor in several Indepenedent films and commercials. In 2011 I started my own company, BlueLight LLC. I trained as a Voice Talent and have since completed several projects for corporations, political candidates and non-profits. In 2014 I became a screenwriter, Producer and Director and have completed over 12 short films, one feature film and several videos. Blessed with winning several awards for many of our films from film festivals. I also teach 7 different classes for students interested in TV/Film/Voice Talent work/ Marketing/Branding and small business. Looking forward to what the future holds as my company continues to create opportunities to cast/crew/students/interns. As a multiple award winning film Producer/Director, I am blessed with 9 award winning films so far from 2016-2022. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm5196241/
