A Little Bit About The Founders
I was born and raised in Massachusetts and diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis a few months after I was born. When I was younger, I had a serious interest in theater, but never had the outlet. As I grew older and my interest in theater faded, I went to college for business. Still, I felt something was missing in my life -- school was not fulfilling. Years later, I was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes due to my CF. At that moment my outlook on life changed drastically. I didn't want to waste my life doing something that was not fulfilling. I decided to follow my passion. I took acting classes with a teacher in Florida, Robert Hatch, and that opened my eyes to what acting and theater really is. I did some short films, a few staged plays, and took more acting classes. Soon, I realized I needed professional training. I auditioned for The American Academy of Dramatics Arts in New York City, and, to my ecstatic jubilation, I was accepted into their intensive acting program. I loved every minute of it. From then on, I knew I was in the right place. Since graduation, I have been cast in numerous film and theater projects. It was in one of those castings that I met Artie. He cast me in two of his thesis films. We worked very well together. It became clear that if I were to move forward with the script that I wrote, he would be the person that would help make it a reality. As years have passed and I have done more film and theater, Artie and I continued working together, and now we have created something that I am proud to be a part of.
I was born in Astoria, New York and raised on Long Island. When I was a child, one of my earliest memories was going to the movies with my family every week. It was in these weekly trips that I found a love for films which has stayed close to me throughout my life. When it came time for me to choose a career, instead of following my passion of films I chose to pursue a degree in journalism at St. John's University. After graduation, I went to do freelance work for various local New York papers, but I never felt like I was fulfilling my truest passion. After a couple years, I lost interest in journalism and moved to South Florida to refocus my life. For the next five years I tended bar and built a long list of personal life experiences which eventually peaked my interest in telling creative stories. In truth, my bartender life was my muse -- I simply fell in love with the people I met, from their personalities to their tragedies. Suddenly, I realized I wanted to translate my feelings on paper and on the big screen. I dropped everything and moved back to New York to go to film school at the New York Film Academy in Union Square. At the end of my first year, I was casting for my thesis film, Fractured Souls when I met Nicholas and cast him as my lead actor in a semi-autobiographical short. We instantly connected on a creative level. We collaborated on a slew of projects and he always mentioned his passion project -- The Gift of Sixty-Five Roses. I was drawn in by the complexity and heart of the story. I wanted to help him bring this film to life. We wrote for more than a year together before completing the script and the journey has been gratifying. In the meantime, I remained active in film and the creative world. I have worked as a 1st Assistant Director on two feature films and a number of short films. Currently, I work as a freelance photographer and blogger.
