Podcast #1- Minorities In Hollywood, Trump, Sanders and Pat Riley

Hey all, here’s my first podcast.  It’s 30 minutes of me talking about the state of the entertainment business thanks to inspiration from Viola Davis and The Emmy’s. I also look at our current political candidates and talk a little sports. Hope you’ll listen to it at your leisure.  Promise to make them shorter and […]

What Is Acting? – My Subjective Opinion

We now live in a world where the majority of acting (and music for that matter or “insert here”) has been relegated to being solely a popularity contest. A recent article came out stating that Hollywood was now casting 7% based on talent and the rest based on “how popular you are” on Instagram, Twitter, […]

Determination – The Story Of The Brooklyn Bridge

As Walt Before Mickey starts to hit theaters and as my new film, Brandini, takes shape, I see a common theme with both projects: determination. A willingness to never give up, no matter what the odds. Despite what others may tell you, despite what others may think, you can not take determination and desire for […]

Arts OR Entertainment

Friends (and, please… only those that have been DEDICATING their lives to being Actors, Singers, Musicians, Dancers, Painters, Directors, etc… for MORE THAN 15 years of their lives) I’m battling with a bit of an esoteric question(s) today.

My Birthday and Kanye West

Today was my 43rd birthday. I was overwhelmed with well wishes. Between FB messages and posts, phone calls, texts, emails, etc. over 600 people reached out to me.

Walt Visits The White House

I truly don’t have many “bucket list” items in my life. Why? Because I assume that I will get to everything I want to do and accomplish in due time. Despite my 43 year old birthday looming, I don’t feel any urgency to get things “in” or done because the proverbial time is slipping away. […]
