What are you working on right now? Anything cool?
I’m producing a Netflix docuseries at the moment, as well as producing a feature film about two intellectually challenged adults who fall in love in a small town in Texas and bond over their love of horses. After a year of uncertainty with COVID, I’m really excited to be back on set soon and see where these projects take me.
What’s your favorite TV show of 2021?
“Your Honor” was probably my favorite show that finished in February. Nothing else has really grasped my attention yet, but I am looking forward to a lot this year like “Bel Air,” “Dexter” and “The Underground Railroad.”
This or that 👉 Netflix or Disney+?
Netflix. My dark humor probably isn’t suited for the kiddies.

When you think you’ve done everything you can, do more. You have way more fight in you than you realize. You truly have to believe in the mantra of “The greater the risk, the greater the reward.” If you don’t, then this business is not for you.
