(Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2017) What a whirlwind of a week (or two)! After all was said and done, I still managed to take a breather and stop by the Hollywood Improv with my friend Tom Eliopoulos to see Judd Apatow, Iliza Shlesinger, Theo Von, Kate Quigley, & Brian Monarch. 

I've been radio silent the last week while juggling the workload I've been managing lately. I'm looking forward to sharing the exciting opportunities that have been in the works these last few months. 

This past Saturday, my producing partner, David Li, hosted a fantastic Entertainment Panel called Entertainment One to Infinity in association with N3XT CON. To say it was a success is an understatement. David did a phenomenal job weaving together a message that helped attendees learn and grow from the panel and their journey. The panel included: Natasha Foster-Owens (VP of Development, HBO), Jessica Yuhara (Fmr. Associate Director of Strategic Development, Fullscreen Media), & Gregory Porter Loomis (Composer & Actor, The Creative Collective). 

I was fortunate enough to film the event with the help of Jo Taeleifi (President, Mavericks Media Group). The above video is just quick piece I put together with iPhone footage. Be on the lookout for the professional footage we captured during the event (to be released in the next couple of weeks after editing). 

As an exciting aside, David and I will be producing more events like this in the future! If you have an interest in establishing a career in the entertainment business or expanding your professional network then be sure to stay tuned.

To sweeten the pot, I still managed to make it to the USC v. Utah football game for an exciting nailbiter victory for the Trojans. 

 USC beat Utah in a nailbiter 29-28.
