About Theo

Since I was a child growing up in Atlanta Georgia in a single parent home, I had one dream, making movies and performing in them. As an Actor, Writer, Producer, Director, and Photographer, I have worn multiple hats, enjoying each one differently.

After earning my BFA in Acting and Directing from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, I moved to Los Angeles in 2001 to obtain a MFA in Acting from California Institute of the Arts. Being an actor living in Los Angeles can be very stressful at times. I have not landed that ONE role that will propel my career so I’ve decided to do my own thing: Acting, Writing, Producing, Directing projects and creating work for others is my mission.

But there is constant noise streaming through the vent in the ceiling of Turtletaub's unit, and the landlord keeps giving Turtletaub the run around, and his salesman has somehow started bringing in investment money even though they do not know what it is that their business does, and Turtletaub is not sure what it is, exactly, that he owes these investors.
