What do you do?
I am a social media entrepreneur with an emphasis on online fanbase building, film distribution and production.
Why do you do it?
My passion for entertainment and technology which is rooted in my experiences working for Walt Disney Entertainment, fuel my desire to make a difference in this space, whether it be providing an opportunity for film makers or optimizing an 100-year-old model that has touched the lives of millions across the world.
What accomplishment in your career to date are you most proud of?
The production of my first short film, letting go. It not only gave me confidence as a film maker, but also an insight into the vigorous nature of the industry that I’m about to revolutionize.
Who has made the biggest impact on you in life so far, and why?
The person who has made the largest impact on my life is President Barack Obama. His innovative values that progress the dreams of American entrepreneurs.
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Poised, tenacious, methodical.
What is something that not a lot of people know about you, but you wish more people could know?
I’m a Disney kid at heart.
If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional, who would it be?
Fred Astair. The golden age of Hollywood absolutely entrances me and he soft-shoed his way right through it.
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?
James Franco. Yes, and thank you.
Where would you go if you had a time machine?
