Actor & Documentary Filmmaker: Up & Coming

It's all about the journey and achieving your dreams. A Tony nomination and working alongside Rosario Dawson, John Leguizamo, Eva Mendes, George Lopez, David Zayas, Danny Trejo, Robin Williams, Chris Rock, Meryl Streep and Madonna, to boot?! Or how about making a documentary on a family secret and told in the process,"There are things that just aren't discussed"? 
This is what set mavericks and risk-takers from those who solely dream. Come hear from two savvy artists in our community who share strategies in overcoming challenges at different stages in their career and projects, and learn what inspires each to get up in the morning and keep going. Join us and be part of the movement!
