Let's see. What to talk about? Well, I'm been interested in the entertainment industry since middle school. How it started was that I had a friend who invited to his house and asked me if I waonted to shoot a short film. Intrigued I said yes and after I saw myself acting and looking like a goof (it was a Tom and Jerry inspired short by the way) I decided that acting is what I wanted to do as a career. I never wanted to do anything else by that until I saw Clint Eastwood's Gran Torino. I got involved with the story and the characters that I began to look film in a different perspective and I began to look int directing and screenwriting.
Once I got into Santa Ana College (SAC) I met three students in my Theater Arts class who all have the same goal as mine and together we formed Paradise Gates Entertainment. The group is beginning to blossom and we are currently working on how to get the wheels running. Thankfully, we have friends who know people who are intrigued with our venture (i.e. my friend JB Adkins) and would be thrilled to help us get on our feet.
Beyond that, I take the group to a personal level because I helped found it and I want to do things right, not just by me but for all those involved. With that said I'm looking forward to all Stage 32 can provide. I hope to work with some fine talent.
