We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Homelessness, Mental Illness (which I elaborate more about in detail in my upcoming New Memoir) and the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
ICP Entertainment is a Multi-faceted Award Winning production company based in NYC providing Pre and Post Production Videography services, and ingenious digital marketing content to help both artists and start-ups grow & expand their business and brand.

I am the CEO/Founder and Creative Director of ICP Entertainment. My CFO, PR an Back office support Representative, is Veena Kondapalli from hyderabad India. I primarily operate all the creative, artistic and technical aspects of the company, from pre and post-production, content creation, screenwriting, shot-lists, songwriting, music production composition, camera equipment selections, editing, to working very closely with film crew hands, actors, make-up, hair and fashion stylists, on various production projects.

What I’m most proud of is my natural ability to see an artist(s) or a brand’s vision very clearly. As a filmmaker everything I view and create first begins with a vision, as an actor, writer and director, I have the ability to modify and perfect that vision or said concept and expand and open it up larger so more eyes can see its true and unique beauty.

Brand wise I am most proud of past and current accomplishments, even in the midst of our new normal. My annual film festival is now in its 8th season, and the artists and businesses who were once on the verge of giving up after Covid 19 hit, but then decided to give us a chance and trust us with their vision, their babies aka passion projects, to watch and see us nurture and develop them as if they were our very own, to ultimate success over exceeding their expectations.

Not one but two budding actresses, who hired us to redo their individual reels were blown away by our turnaround time and final product. To read both of their testimonials on how they began to get more paid film projects and gigs/bookings brought tears to my eyes, but happy tears. I read them often on our website homepage to remind myself of why I’m so blessed to do what I do each and everyday.
