Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Monday Michiru

What do your words have to do with it? Well, a whole lot! Words are an expression of everything we think, feel, see, and more! They describe all of our senses and yet when they are woven within the very notes of the palette of instruments laid out before us, there is even more that can be said, felt, and heard. The guest in this episode is a master at not only being able to convey through her own music and lyrics an incredible amount of expression, but she is able to inspire others through her extraordinary wisdom and talent through the gift of teaching in her STORYTELLERS WORKSHOP NYC.

Guest, Songstress and Producer, Monday Michiru, was born in Tokyo, Japan and raised in coastal U.S. as the daughter of NEA Jazz Master and Japanese National Living Treasure Toshiko Akiyoshi, cult jazz saxophonist Charlie Mariano as well as jazz saxophonist-flutist Lew Tabackin, Monday Michiru, so named to reflect both her Japanese and American-Italian heritages, started music classically on flute studying at the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy in the U.S. on scholarship, gravitating later to singing, composition and production. In 1987 she debuted in the lead role as an opera singer in the Japanese movie “Hikaru Onna” which garnered her Best New Actress award by the Japan Film Academy. Her subsequent move back to Japan furthered her career in acting, as well as hosting her own radio programs, modeling, performing in fashion corporate events, and as a journalist with steady columns. Since her music debut release in 1991, Monday has released albums on an annual basis both as a soloist and collaborator and is known as one of the pioneers of the Japanese acid jazz movement. While her discography boasts countless dance floor hits worldwide, Monday’s compositional style and repertoire has evolved to that which is undeniably hers with reflections of jazz, soul, Brazilian, folk, and other urban and world flavors. Monday currently resides in New York, continues to record and perform worldwide, and heads the lyric writing seminars STORYTELLERS WORKSHOP NYC.

What are your OPTIONS? Financial options, that is! Today’s guest explains what options are and gives a great picture of how they can be a great asset for you. “ A lot of people like to confuse options with just regular stocks or equities and how they move, but basically it’s very simple. You have the stock market and then you have derivatives. Derivatives are basically options and what that means is this. It is another way to invest in the stock market, but use leverage to your favor. They’re basically contracts that are tied to the stock market, that basically expire at a certain date forward in time.” He goes into detail using an example about “Tesla,” but here is another simple example he uses, “I can buy those at a small price and sell those at a larger price basically, what Walmart does in the wintertime. They buy millions of hotdogs to sell you during the summer of the next year right so that’s the basic idea behind options and on a psychological kind of on a larger I would say more adult scale. It’s another way to be able to invest your money and be the captain of your own ship, which is important not only to the baby boomer generation that’s retiring now but also the millennial generation that is actually drowning in debt.”

Guest, Options Strategist at Simpler Trading, Jack Roberts, comes from small-town West, Texas. He has a relatability factor and characteristic that’s made many members feel right at home with his easy-going mentality and thirst for knowledge. He started his path as a full-time trader with his grandfather as his mentor, and later on, John Carter. Jack took it upon himself to pursue trading from a self-teaching perspective. In the first four years, he spent trading only stocks and then moved into options once he saw some additional profit. His ‘aha’ moments came when he got a jump start on Elon Musk’s pipe dream and bought options of TSLA, which have since skyrocketed. Jack was one of the first to get in on both AMD and TASR (which is now known as Axon). That’s when he realized he has a knack for seeing things before most and has used that to build his trading career into what it is today.

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Debbie Boyd

What’s your strategy? We often think about what we are going to use our paycheck for. This amount of it goes here. This amount goes there. How much do I have to pay my bills and how much there is to invest? What is the rate of return and how much money do I need to make it worth it? Today’s guest talks about some of these important questions, “What is money? Is money something to be spent freely, donated, and cherished, or is it something that you hoard and you hang on to and you don’t let anybody close to because you’re afraid that you’ll lose it?” She also brings some other food for thought and gives very in-depth detail on reverse mortgages. One of the things she shared, “Rates are at an all-time low, so everybody goes, “Well, why would you leverage it now? Times are good.” That’s when you do it. You don’t do it when times are bad. So, I think we need to kind of have an education from an outside third party. Not with our family. Not with someone you don’t go to. Someone that has money to help you regulate how to make money. You only go to people that make money to help you make money.” She also explained the misconceptions surrounding what people have been told about reverse mortgages. “What a reverse mortgage does it actually gives us more ways to get cash flow.” She also details what and why this could be beneficial in the event the homeowner were to pass away. There is a lot of information! Grab a pen and paper!

Guest, Debbie Boyd, is CEO of DLB Financial and a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and is the radio host on her show, Money Strategies with Debbie, which has been aired for over a decade dicing complicated financial news into easy to understand pieces brings some eye-opening facts about finances to this episode.

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Eddie Ghabour

Just how fast does life go by? We want to talk about retirement because we usually don’t. Everything else tends to draw our attention away from this essential topic, but if we put it off, we can face some serious consequences. Early in life, the days seem so long and arduous and when we wake up in the morning, we think the day seems to go on forever and there is so much to do. Then later, we realize a week has gone by or a month has gone by. Then, oftentimes, we look back and the decades have gone by. It is at this point where many people realize that life had gone by too fast and the retirement inquires or planning they were going to do never got done. And now what?

Guest, Eddie Ghabour, co-owner and managing partner of Key Advisors Group, LLC, returns to share how to prevent letting life pass your retirement by or even “goodbye.” Eddie graduated from York College of Pennsylvania with a degree in Economics and Finance and in1998, he began a successful career in financial planning. In 2000, he started Key Advisors Group, LLC with his business partner and since then has qualified for the prestigious, MDRT (membership is based on sales criteria), Court of the Table, and Top of the Table honors each year. Eddie is an Investment Advisor Representative who offers investment advisory services through WFG Advisors, LP. He is also insurance-licensed in Delaware and author of The Common-Sense Bull, The Keys to the Good Life Before and During Retirement.

Specializing in money management, Eddie also focuses on retirement and estate planning strategies for his clients, He works with local CPAs and attorneys implementing tax saving strategies to help clients protect their hard-earned assets from unnecessary taxation. He is also a member of the local Chamber of Commerce and The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors.

Eddie, his wife Lauren, and their sons Eddie and Elijah reside in Milton, Delaware. In his free time, Eddie volunteers as a coach for Lewes Little League. When Eddie is not working or coaching on the baseball diamond he can usually be found enjoying the sun at the beach, or on the golf course.

In many areas of our life, we can put things on the back burner, such as our finance, and not take a hard look at them under there is a situation that is dire. At that point, it is too late and you have to resort to taking drastic measures like selling off prized possessions or taking out loans and stacking up debt. In many areas of life, such as fitness, a professional athlete will have a personal trainer help them get to achieve a goal. The athlete becomes accountable. When we become accountable to ourselves and dedicate ourselves to something important, we succeed. This is Eddie’s coaching style, where about every 3 months he is coaching you to achieve your goals and help you succeed.

Stop for a minute. Don’t let time just pass your retirement by.

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Dr. Melissa Ridley Elmes

Does history really repeat itself? This episode was very exciting and gives us an opportunity to think about how historical events and practices from all types of cultures affect future events and evolve. One of the areas we can look at is in the area of violence. If we take a look at specific issues from a historical vantage point, we might be able to shift and prevent things from happening. This can hold true in domestic violence, workplace violence, and other types of social violence. Looking back, we can see ahead, which can actually be fun. This is especially true when we look at it where we take a specific topic and apply it to different cultures and see what the potential outcome(s) can be. It’s also fascinating to take current issues, then look back and discover that despite how unique some of them seem to be, there are cultures that have experienced them we can certainly learn from. To gain more insight and enthusiasm on this, you will want to hear what this guest expert has to say.

Guest Expert, Assistant Professor of English and Medieval Literature, Dr. Melissa “Melle” Ridley Elmes, a scholar, interdisciplinary and comparative literary historian and critic, writer of poetry, along with fiction and nonfiction, who specializes in the medieval British Isles and North Atlantic World, with emphasis on Old and Middle English alongside Anglo-Norman, Welsh, and Old Norse/Icelandic literature and culture has much to share on this episode.

She also has interests with research engaged in Arthurian legend; Chaucer; Robin Hood/outlawry; women’s and gender studies, particularly women’s literate practices and women and violence; alchemy, magic, and esoterica; monsters and the supernatural; literature and the law; genre studies and medieval English, Anglo-Norman, Welsh, and Icelandic poetic forms; mythology and folklore; ecocritical and animal studies; manuscript studies and history of the book, philology, and history of the English language.

Melissa is author of Arthurian Things: A Collection of Poems that published in February 2020 by Dark Myth Publications, along with a number of additional scholarly literary works (see the link to additional works below). She has several upcoming research projects on the horizon and has a vast array of knowledge and experience that has led to exemplary work. For example, she served at the Avalon domestic violence shelter, with 80 hours of training, working as a volunteer for the shelter on the hotline. She mentioned during this episode, “I think that really started my interest in thinking through questions of trauma, in questions of violence, and intersections of trauma violence, class, race, gender. I do a lot of work with that in my teaching, especially in my composition courses, but I do a lot of it in my Lit classes too.”

Melissa has been monumental in uncovering current issues that need address based on findings from her research. “It’s a field that over the past 20 or so years, I’d say medieval feminist scholarship has been conducted, and much more recently, there’s been a real push, an important push, for it to be intersectional and inclusive and we’re uncovering things that have been hiding in plain sight for 1,500 years. It’s dynamic and it’s exciting! It’s causing some waves. It’s causing some problems.” This is an exciting episode that will draw you in on many levels and allow you to gain a new perspective on how you look at and maybe even conquer new challenges.

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with TG Watkins

Is trading marbles like trading stocks? Many adults can look back and think of things they traded in grade schools with their peers. For some, it may have been marbles and for others maybe Hello Kitty items. When trading, kids could see the value in one item and would have to figure out what they need to do to get it with the items they had on hand. What happened when we became adults? Some went into trading stocks and others maybe didn’t understand them and the fun was lost.

Guest, Director of Stocks at Simpler Trading, TG Watkins, who has an Engineering degree, set earned his Series 6 and 63 licenses and started his career as a financial advisor with New York Life with vigor and passion. It was there his knowledge about the financial industry really exploded. TG uses his custom-designed Moxie Indicator as the backbone for trading and understanding the movements of the market. The easy to read Moxie indicator, combined with 2 primary moving averages, gives you the structure needed to make sense of the market, along with, multiple time frames making sure that tunnel vision doesn’t set in.

During this episode, TG shared how, at 12 years old, he developed an interest in this area and how you too could get involved which can let to a sound financial foundation. He said, “How you can learn if you don’t already know. How to make this better and how it can equip you to get your finances in a position where it will put you not only with a good foundation but will give you a really great cushion. If you already have that good foundation…”

He also wanted to make people comfortable with getting into trading and talked about it this way: “…to explore and make those mistakes. You know, fall off the bike a little bit. You’re gonna push the wrong button. There’s go up when it should be going down. You need to make sure that you have that safety net of basically no money so you can learn this and then once you’ve practiced this a little bit, once you start to catch on to this, you can realize that, ‘Okay, I’m getting this. I see these patterns.’ This starts making sense and you’ve done this all without losing any money. Once you’ve proven to yourself that you can make these setups and you see it over and over and over, then you can start applying some money to it. So, an account, like you said, if you have five hundred dollars, maybe a little less, you could just go out there and buy one share. You know kind of get your toes a little bit wet because you don’t want to throw five hundred dollars all in your first trade. If that’s your entire account size that’s very risky and you’d risk all of your entire account. So, maybe buy one share. Maybe buy two shares. It depends on the cost of the share and how much you have in your account and then go into the penny stocks. Just because they’re cheap and maybe you can pick up 200 shares.”

Whether you are just interested in getting that grade school trading feeling back, want to know more about how to trade, who to have help you learn about trading, or getting you more from where you are at, this episode gives insight in the why, what, how, and who to get you there. Get ready to go to the track. The trade track!

PTSD? Anxiety? Codependency? Addiction? Mental Health Talk –pukka! Many people face anxiety, codependency, PTSD, and other things that the mind grapples with. Where does it come from and how can the symptoms be reduced, the cause removed, our well being made better? Often, assumptions are made about these different topics and that can hinder successful treatment. For example, when someone hears the word “codependency,” they might deduce it to their intimate or romantic relationship; however, it can also extend to family members or even objects such as food or work. This episode hands to you an extraordinary woman who candidly shared her own addiction recovery, the overcoming of childhood incest, and how she has dedicated her life to helping others overcome their challenges.

Guest, Lori Golden, is passionate about helping both trauma and abuse survivors on their healing journey. Her work today is an outgrowth of her recovery from childhood incest and addictions. She has worked in the mental health profession since the seventies, earning her Master’s in Social Work from Hunter College in New York with later training at the Gestalt Institute. Eventually, she opened her own private practice. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, she combines various therapies she has gained knowledge and experience in over the years in her practice. Lori does not limit herself to one modality of practice since her client’s needs vary. She believes there are many roads that lead to an individual’s healing.

In her private practice, she works with individuals, couples and families in and out of recovery from drugs, alcohol, food, codependency, sex, and love addiction as well as people who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder resulting from trauma and abuse. A special group of trauma survivors centers on her work with burn survivors and caregivers. ‘

Her first book, My House of Lies, is a memoir about her addiction, recovery and overcoming childhood incest after thirty-seven years of amnesia. More significantly, her book reveals a remarkable journey to seek the truth, reclaim parts of herself that was lost to dissociation and addiction, and turn her own trauma and abuse into a passion to help others face their challenges. Lori inspires and motivates others to seek their truth and heal in her consulting and presentations.

Excerpts from this episode: Rebecca: “The first thing I want to say is for anyone who is listening. If you have been apprehensive to talk to somebody and you want to talk confidentially because you’re not at a position or haven’t been in a position where you feel like you’ve wanted to admit to something, but you just kind of want to talk and see where this goes, Lori is there to assist you in your journey to make your life better.”

Lori: “I reached the bottom in using drugs and at that point in my life my main drugs were… Valium {} and at that point it was Valium throughout the day and sleeping…”

“I absolutely will talk with whoever it is that wants to share because part of my recovery is being able to give away this kind of experience to other people to help them in their journey”

“I started increasingly getting symptoms of PTSD. Now, I had always had symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, flashbacks, nightmares, but I medicated with sleeping pills.”

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Arwen Becker

Hey girl! This is for you! Learning about finances and even teaching them to others can be quite a challenge. This can be especially true if this is an area where you have been out of the workforce and are now ready to jump in, were kept from learning about finances (for example, a victim of domestic violence), divorced, single moms, widowed, or maybe just thinking about it seemed to be overwhelming. Often, women feel energized when learning from other women who have experienced similar situations as they have, pushed through it, and have made something successful from it. They feel empowered when the skills they learn can be put to use that enables them to shape not only their immediate lives but their future.

Guest Arwen Becker, financial adviser, author, national speaker, and owner of “Becker Retirement Group” and the training company, “LIFE with Arwen” shared how after meeting with thousands of women over the years, she and her companies have taken a direct focus on impacting the way women are treated in the area of finance. Her reach is through radio, podcasts, books, and by giving 30+ “women’s only” events a year. She has made it “BRG’s” mission to help connect with women in her community who aren’t getting the attention and help they need and truly deserve. Her deep desire is to answer that overarching question of each woman, “Am I gonna be okay?”

Excerpts from this episode: “Oftentimes, what women do, they spend 15 up to 15 percent of their years out of the workforce because they’re either taking care of kids or they’re taking care of parents…much more likely than their brothers to care for parents.”

“I don’t want to be a burden on my kids, but then what are you left with. We don’t want to be a burden, but yet we are so generous by nature which is the part of this.”

“…if you’re married, if you’re not, you have sole responsibility of your own financial picture because you’re gonna be the one handling it. Most likely at any point that you look in your life, some point in there, you’re gonna be the one responsible and you better know how it works.”

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Aviva Reimer

Help I need to reorganize my….! – There are times where people can feel disorganized in various aspects in their life such as things at work, at home, in relationships, and even internally. The stress from not having things in order can add up and become overwhelming. Searching is one example of a “stressor.”We can find ourselves searching for misplaced items keys to searching for love. There are many things can be “stressors” and the more we avoid them the better. Sometimes though, we need a confidant. We need someone who has been there; we need someone we can trust and can show us some techniques tailored to our individuality that will guide us to success, whatever that success may be for you. Finding someone like this can be difficult, so perk your ears up to the guest on this episode who will share details on life transformation. Are you ready?

We make your vision. We create your wish list, everything you probably want in your life, we’re gonna do this together. We’re gonna get you there so we start with the home. We do a complete declutter. “ “…then we start decluttering your relationships and your friendships because that is also part of your environment. Certain people can have a positive impact on you and there’s people who have a very negative effect…”

Aviva talked about how to rebuild trust in certain areas. One of the things she shared is that because everything we are involved with impacts how we think and how we live, it then is necessary to declutter even those who are not healthy for our emotional, physical, or psychological well being.

Ian Guerin: R&B’s Shining New Star

“Irreplaceable”, is the title of singer, songwriter, and producer’s Ian Guerin’s triumphant new album, however it also describes his irreplaceable velvet and passionate voice and the titanic talent belonging to its creator. Already celebrating several successful singles generated from the album including: “Cry”, UK Best R&B Soul Song of the year, UK #1 single “Roll the Dice”, and “Free Time”, four time award winning U.K. #1 single, which has just been released in the US.

Like a raging tsunami Ian Guerin vibrantly and authentically writes songs from the heart…or should I say the heartbreak. Carefully choosing his lyrics, Ian sings from his soul. His R&B romantic touch defines his style and celebrates his destiny. His candid honesty goes beyond all smoke and mirrors. He tells the truth no matter how much it hurts.

 Bring us up to date on what is presently going on in your career?

 I’m still promoting my album “Irreplaceable”. It’s the singles tree that keeps on giving; I feel like Luis Fonsi with ‘Despacito’ or Lil Nas X with ‘Old Town Road’ when they tried to release albums, but their singles just kept on giving.

It’s the same for ‘Irreplaceable’, I’ve recorded over 5 collaborations & was starting to develop a sound for my next album — complete with a new anthem — & back we go because ‘Feature in Your Life’ has quietly become a playlists  favorite & then everybody’s favorite & that at the same time has pushed the popularity of my U.S. single ‘Free Time’ — so it gets more exposure & attention too.

Then there’s these award shows coming up where I’ll hopefully perform & they help get the word out on ‘Irreplaceable’ so I’m just thinking on recording more songs for a Deluxe Edition, because it’s clear to me there’s more to this album.

 What is the best advice that your parents have ever given you? 

 My mom — who is a Human Resources retiree — always tells me to never get mad at my team for getting things done wrong, because it happens in every company so I should see everyday work problems, not as a burden, but as what has to get done & overcome. She tells me I’m a company like everyone else’s, & I’m the CEO, so I have an obligation to be the best team player.

She also tells me my wish is my command so, if I’m brave enough to see it in my mind, I can hold it in my hands.

My dad told me from a young age (9) — when I came back from recording my first demo — that singers are cool, but songwriters are “the real deal.” He told me it was awesome that I wanted to sing, but that I do it singing my own stuff, because that way I could always be the ringleader of my show. I took it really badly for years — because I thought he was discouraging my singing — but I now know it’s true. You write your songs, you own your career, you don’t & someone else does. I can write for others & myself & then make it on both sides of the court. I thank him for that.

You are a glass of water, are you half empty or half full and why?

 I’m both. My glass is always half full of achievements, satisfaction & gratefulness, & half empty because there are new dreams & goals to attain.

You are standing in front of Macy’s naked and holding up a sign, what does the sign say?

“I’ll take the clothes large & the sponsorship check big & fat.” Smile with shades emoji.

If you could be anyone in history for one day who would it be and why?

I think it would have to be Fred Astaire cause I’m obsessed with real showmen. Those artists that needed nothing but a spotlight, their charm & their sharply rehearsed yet born-with talent. Those whose sole presence brought the house down anywhere they performed. Gene Kelly said “the history of dance in films begins with Astaire & he’s the only one who’ll be remembered.”

I’m captivated by his energy & by the era he lived in, when music & entertainment were real, & production did not run the show. I’d love to feel what those times were like through his eyes; because in truth I feel like an old soul that should’ve been alive & performing back then.

If you could perform anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

The O2 Arena. All my contemporary idols have done it, & to me, if you play the O2, you’ve made it. It’s the epitome of class in the capital of music. Michael did not get to do it or he would — to this day — hold the record for most shows. So O2 it is.

Do you believe that music can change the world?

 I think it can. It sure has the power to unite & that’s what we need, less greed, less hate, less ego, more love, more understanding, more empathy, common sense & care. It seems like we insist on using our privileged rationale to benefit us humans only, instead of all living beings.

Here we are the most intelligent beings in the planet acting so primal & positioning ourselves as the only animal on earth that does not contribute to its environment.

If we make music with substance — that’s not only fun but persuasive — then it’s repetition would definitely have an impact on people’s mindset.

To me there are songs so powerful that I feel like they’re a wonder of the world, yet I go out into it & few to none seem to understand that sentiment. I’d say the fans get it cause they’re equally as invested as I am, yet regular people — at least the vast majority of the ones I’ve come across — don’t seem to notice the moving power music.

Music can change your view & your vibe & it serves a purpose like everything else in life; it’s just a matter of wanting to see it & putting it to use. House pets have now discovered the relaxing power of classical music, so they’re now exploiting its purpose, yet here we humans are being humans thinking it’s only meaningless entertainment.

Do you have a hero or an idol, and if so who is it?

My heroes are my mom, my dad & sister, for putting me through the hard times, yet my idol is Michael Jackson.

The things that man had to endure in his life mentally & realistically speak volumes of the natural ability we have to overcome obstacles in our life. A lot of his loving fans follow me because of him & we all agree in the fact that he had a thick skin, because many of us wouldn’t have made it in his situation. He was completely forced to be different, first by his father, then by the public.

I think there is a merit to that level of achievement, regardless of the impossibilities, the insecurity & the trauma. He was a victim of physical abuse at an early age yet again he understood early that in life you dust yourself off & pick yourself up or you’re over.

That victim masquerade was just that. He was weird & spoiled & stubborn & made wrong choices, but don’t we all? He was unable — as many of us — to acknowledge his mistakes & blamed his lack of judgement on others. However, he was also a man who helped without bragging. The things he did choose to publicize were the ones that led people to paint the wrong picture.

He was never given enough credit & was judged my many when the saying goes: “the cleaner the closet door, the dirtier the skeletons within” & boy do we see some clean doors in many of those runny mouth’s households.

The court of public opinion is tough, even though he did put himself in vulnerable situations & made poor choices. I see the good & the bad in everything & Michael is no different.

Any new projects?

There are many. However, people need to follow me on social media to find out on a need-to-know basis, because I don’t want to jinx them.

What’s coming is big & we are in it together because, per usual, without the people that support me everything is just a dream. See all of you @iamianguerin on Instagram!

“She’s The Last Model Standing” By Wendy Stuart Kaplan Available Worldwide

Dubbed by her friends “the Kathy Griffin of fashion”, Wendy’s hilarious, occasionally poignant story of how she became – and has remained for 30 years – one of the most successful “fit” models in the country (that size 8 you’re wearing might very well be based on Wendy Stuart Kaplan’s figure), is told with a Griffin-esque sense of humor untarnished by malice. From studying voodoo in Nigeria through years of taking mind-numbing jobs just to pay the rent, to her success in the present day where she can say of the women’s underwear sold at Wal-Mart, modeled on her size eight body, “I cover the asses of the masses.”

SHE’S THE LAST MODEL STANDING is an “only-in-New-York” tale and an addictive page-turner. Wendy’s humor, intelligence and unique analysis of the fashion/entertainment industry make this memoir a true stand-out in the field.

WENDY STUART KAPLAN is one of the top fit models in New York City.  An experienced “clothing technician” and a perfect size 8, she fits everything from outerwear to lingerie.  Her client roster is as eclectic as her career including Eileen Fisher, Roca Wear, London Fog Coats, Warnaco intimates and Christian Dior Swimwear.

 

As an actress, print model, and stand up comedienne, Wendy has worked in film, television and theatre and has made appearances on many syndicated and daytime talk shows.  Her fun personality and quick sense of humor made her a standout guest whether she was modeling unusual wedding gowns on Geraldo or selling shoes on Speigel TV.  Her ecclectic career also includes being voted Mrs. NY, going on to compete in the National Mrs. America pageant.

Wendy’s other interests include decorating and animals. Creating an oasis of country style living, her NYC apartment has been featured in many national decorating magazines.  Her original tips and creative ideas have made Wendy a sought after expert in country style.

 

Wendy’s deep love for animals extends to maintaining her own petting Zoo in her NYC apartment.  Her menagerie includes two angora rabbits, a chocolate colored longhaired Chihuahua, various hamsters and fish and a vociferous cockatoo named Louise.

 

Also residing with Wendy on the upper east side of Manhattan is her Commercial Photographer husband, Alan and their 14-year-old daughter Kyle.  The entire family has a deep passion for travel but is especially fond of and has made many visits to the Peruvian Amazon.

Wicked Witch: A Phoenix Rising

He’s risen from the ashes like the great Phoenix, with a persona like a human tornado with a warped space whirling around a central singularity. He’s rubbed elbows with Ozzie Osbourne, Marilyn Manson, Jeff Beck, Nancy Wilson, and David Oberlin from Korn who produced his newest music. He an artist as well as a singer/songwriter who is successfully following his own inspiration.

World meet “Wicked Witch!” Spawned from the waves of collaborative diversity, the art of thinking independently together, figuring out how to walk through the world together using differences as strengths. I first encountered him at the Grammy Soirée and I was sure he was exceptional. Then two weeks later I celebrated his presence at International designer Sue Wong’s Oscar Party and our fate was sealed…..

Wicked Witch has The Wicked Witch Foundation a vehicle to help new, unsigned artists rise. He is also planning an anti-bullying effort. I spoke to the Witch regarding his career and his future endeavors.

What inspired you to want to become part of the music world?

As a child I always loved music and I was always inspired by other artists and inspired by my mother’s work ethic. I just have a love for music and I always felt that one day I was going to be someone big.

What inspired your name, “Wicked Witch?”

I was at a concert accompanied by Ozzy Osbourne and he basically baptized me in front of a lot of people and that’s how Wicked Witch was born, right after that.

If you could have your ultimate stage fantasy what would have to happen?

Oh man….me on stage with Rob Zombie, Ozzy Osbourne again, Marilyn Manson and all of us just jamming on stage.

When you were growing up who were your major musical influences?

There were a few artists, but they didn’t really inspire me too much to do the music. I always had my own mindset. I liked what they did as far as music, but it was my mom’s work ethic that gave me the drive within my family. I liked  JAY-Z, Incubus, Lincoln Park, Demi Lovato, Avril Lavigne. There were a lot of artists like Whitney Houston inspiring me, their music inspired me but as far as me doing music I always felt like this is what I was supposed to do.

You’re almost about to release your single, do we have a date?

I chose April 1, 2020. It’s called “Molly” and it’s produced by Davy Oberlin. He’s a live keyboardist in the rock band Korn.

How did you get to meet him?

A lot of people just started connecting with me. They’ve been seeing a lot of different work that I’ve been putting out. There were a lot of different events that were interesting for them and they started hitting me up. A lot of people just want to start collaborating.

I’ve noticed some artwork on your media…..is that yours? Are you an artist as well? 

Yes I am.  I love drawing. A little bit about that, I’m launching my Wicked Witch fundraiser where I am creating handmade art work which will be definitely available to purchase. My artwork is inspired by my life story. I’m just painting different emotions of what I go through, I know a lot of people go through the same. Painting has always been a way to relax my mind.

You’re very well rounded artistic wise. You’re from New York?

Yes, Brooklyn New York.

What caused you to relocate to LA?

I always saw Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Callie artists on BET. I would notice the palm trees, I was looking at the weather and then in New York all I saw was the projects… I’m not discrediting where I’m from…. I loved it, but it’s real ghetto, it’s the hood, but here I was seeing a whole different environment. I always liked all the Hollywood stars out there and it’s like living the dream to be out there in California. I just had to keep working hard and just make a move. I had to find different places, get a job and everything in the beginning but then things started working out in my favor later on. So, I’m definitely blessed for that.

If you could help me ask you any question in the world what would that question be?

I love that question…I’ve never heard somebody say that…..that’s like a real serious question. How about what did it take for me to become so strong in this kind of industry?

Ok, what is it about you that made you so strong in such a tough, unforgiving industry?

It does take a lot! I would have to say that hitting rock-bottom because there was a point in time that it was either I stayed in Brooklyn or just kept on going. So, I just kept going. There was a point in time I was on the street. I used to walk around to try to figure out what I wanted to do. I was in another state at the time and I was trying to figure out that either I was going back home to New York, or I was going to keep going and make something out of it. So, I just kept going and remembered the crime and everything that I had gone through and it reminded me that if I didn’t keep going and stay focused, I could be back in that situation. That was one situation I definitely didn’t want to be in. I knew it would take a lot of hard work to get where I needed to go. I’m proud of myself, just moving to the grind never giving up. It’s like I’m inspiring my own self…. you just keep going. I want to inspire others at the same time during my journey.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I see myself really doing the same thing that I’m doing right now but just leveling up. As far as my art I can see that getting better, my foundation I can see more unsigned artists just joining the foundation and making the change. As far as my music I want to hit the Billboards, Grammys, Oscars, that’s where I see myself…..in each category.

Are you working on any new projects at the moment?

I’m working on a project with Deep Roy (Charlie’s Chocolate Factory, Star Trek). That’s my boy…We’re working on a CD now. I’m going to be writing his raps. It’s going to be called The Witch and the something…I don’t know what he’s going to call himself …we gotta have a name and we’re going to have a 5 song EP. I’m also working on something different myself…I didn’t even do it yet, but it is so interesting. It’s a whole different style, a whole different person…

Explain The Wicked Witch Foundation?

As a child growing up, I always had a passion for music, acting and modeling. I’m going to inspire the unsigned talent. That’s what the Wicked Witch Foundation is about, inspiring, guiding, and providing…resources. I am offering opportunities to experience music, fashion, Red Carpets, and networking.

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Ray William (RW) Roldan

The lights illuminate on Rebecca’s guest, United States Navy Veteran Ray William Roldan, who is an artist, singer, songwriter, recording artist, performer, sculptor, poet, and owner of “Swing Samurai Music.” Ray William (RW) released several albums including “In California Country,” “Mended Fences,” “Where We Come From,” and “Can You Feel This?” He has been nominated for a number of “Song of the Year” awards and has been involved with other bands and compilations, one of which is,” Keepin’ It Country”((Vol. 1) a various artist compilation). He has worked all around the San Fernando Valley, in California immersing himself in the blues and Americana scene. He gravitated to-wards music and poetry, appreciating contemporary wordsmiths like Dylan and Dr. Seuss, as much as, American treasures such as Yates and began crafting his own indelible blend of country blues folk-rock – a sound that lands somewhere between Hank Williams and Cowboy Junkies. He has been working with producer Max Allyn who recently signed him to “AllsWell Records” imprint out of Nashville.

During the show, Ray William (RW) shared how being born to an outlaw biker father and his 16-year-old mother brought him to the coming of age in the “Los Angeles of the ’60s and ’70s.” His family had spent a few years of being homeless, prompting him to join the Navy at the age of 17. His young life was full of hard circumstances and difficult environments, but Ray William (RW) always seemed to soften things with his easy knack for storytelling.

Ray William (RW) also shared how his tenacity has now allowed him to split his time between his house in Topanga Hills, California and a newly-purchased dwelling (that once belonged to Fatty Arbuckle in Silverlake, California) where he has built a studio in the basement. It was professed to be haunted for the past 12 years, though he has found it to be a suitably creative environment to craft his songs.

This episode will encourage you to pursue your dreams no matter what type of background or situation you have faced or are facing. You may also connect and feel strength from the connection of Ray William’s music. The power of your destiny comes from within!

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Jimmy Star

What a show! Floodlights are on guest, Jimmy Star, who is a TV /radio show host expert, famed publicist, celebrity clothing designer, “Amazon” best-selling author, editor, director, casting director, screenwriter, producer, and actor who has been in at least 70 films (“Incubus” and “Son of Morning” are two) and in many of the Marvel” comic book movies. He is well known for “The Jimmy Star Show with Ron Russell,” a TV show that climbed to be the #1 webshow in the world with over 4.5 million listens/views per week, was nominated to be on the ballot of the 2016 Emmy Awards, and was named the 5th most influential radio personality in the world. Jimmy has received many awards to include one from the prestigious Award-Winning “PR Maven,” who named him “Best Music Publicist in the United States” at the “Nashville Universe Music Awards.” Along with his weekly TV show and working as a publicist, he is involved with an upcoming comic book, “Celebrity Ghost Hunters,” so be on the lookout!

During this vibrant episode, Jimmy shared details about a chapter in his life where he had great success, “I started a clothing line and bought an old hotel in Pompano Beach, Florida and we turned it into kind of like a “Fred Segal.” I loved it! It’s a really cool store. In the hotel, we made every single room a different type of clothes and “everybody” came shopping there. Elton John came shopping there. People would bring in tour buses and they would do movie shoots and music video shoots! We made really wild clothes!”

He went on to tell the devastating effects of how that chapter of his life closed with a situation far too close to home for many running small businesses of their own and even for others who are dealing eminent domain issues and the “red tape” as some call it. But, as they say in the “Star” business… “THE SHOW MUST GO ON!”

Rebecca and Jimmy talked about so many gripping things; however, there is something the two shared in common you should check out, amongst other things, that is a great take away: If we would all pay-it-forward and help each other accomplish the things we set out to do, instead of focusing solely on ourselves, we would be working as a team and everyone would make money and achieve things we never thought possible!

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Lysa Nalin

In the limelight this episode is guest, Lysa Nalin, who is an accomplished photographer and filmmaker from Los Angeles, California in partnership with the infamous Harry Langdon. She has photographed iconic celebrities, press, red carpet events, and fashion magazines, but most of all loves bringing out the unique beauty that resides in even the shyest of subjects. Lysa is also an actress and art director who is known for her roles in “Tuff Turf,” “Scream of the Bikini,” and “Dreamrider,” and she is the producer/editor/DP of “The Last War We Ever Won / Stories from the Greatest Generation.”

After attending “USC, she had done theater, was an “extra” standing next to Meryl Streep, and was in some commercials. Later, she started writing and wrote music called, “Truth.” For her, this is where many different things, directing, music, and acting staring evolving as “they all felt the same;” she was able to express the creativity from within.

Lysa was able to work with Steven Spielberg’s DP and learned the art of lighting from watching…and there too “they are all about expressing yourself.” For Lysa, “photography is really great because I could show anybody themselves, in their highest self, and that will have an impact on them forever.” She went on to share “what is captured on the camera is what other people see and oftentimes, we don’t see the beauty until it’s shown to us. Sometimes it takes a long time. You look back at a picture- “Oh my god! I’m 30 and I’m so old!” and then you’re 50 and you’re like, “Oh my god! I was a child at 30!” and you look back on what you learned and it’s not as negative as you’re thinking in your own heart.” Rebecca replied, “When you see that change, from that moment forward, everything about the things in their life are no longer going to be the same. They may have the same situations or issues but, there’s gonna be something different about it that’s gonna ultimately lead them in a direction that is unlike where they’re at.”

During the show, you will garner so much about the concept of lighting and angles, and how perception can be applied to many different things in life, aside from just the elements of photography, that will allow you to become more confident, make healthier choices, and more!

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Taurean Peterson and Brad Williams

This double feature opens with guest, Taurean Peterson, who is the writer and director” known for “Vixens & Villains,” “Grit,” and “Grit.” He is also an actor with a background specializing in SEO, online marketing, and web design. His influence has continued to grow by taking all of his interest in film and turning it into two very successful films, “Grit” and “Grit.” After the “Grit” films, he did “Mr.Cutter,” a kind of throwback to the days of “Tales of from the Crypt.” These skills and the success he felt from those films brought “Vixens & Villains.” Taurean shared, “The storyline is pretty much about two private investigators who are hired by this lady who’s looking for her missing sister and when they start looking into the investigation they uncover a conspiracy that involves organized crime corporations and politicians.”

“…..action sequences and fight sequences area actually all done by the ladies so that’s going to be gonna be on some “KillBill” type stuff. Yeah, I have a lot of women that are going to be getting active on screen,” “…. damsels in distress, but the lead lady characters…they hold their own”

“…..one of the private investigators, it’s like a throwback to “Columbo” and the times of “Humphrey Bogart” with that with that “crime noir” type still, you know, with a little bit of an urban audience. They’re going to be able to see that the other private investigator, he’s more like “Will Smith” from “Bad Boys,” “Miami Vice” type stuff, but you don’t see other synergy works together on film, which is going to be something different, as well. So, we have all these different things in there and it’s all going to be intertwined.”

Taurean shared some tools with the audience for writers and those who want to know more about writing a screenplay. While you have to get the details from listening to the show, here is a tidbit: “being a good screenplay writer, it’s funny. Less is better and novel is more.”

Returning to the show is guest Brad Williams, CEO of “Williams Financial Services,” whose number one goal is to build a solid foundation for a financial house, that is YOUR financial house, and treat his clients as if they were his own parents.

The first topic discussed is bankruptcy. Brad shared that when you have a long expansion, meaning the market has gone up and people see their 401ks going up, they are more optimistic. Even with one issue being credit, when people feel good, they tend to buy things. Companies and stores make it really easy for you. Buy now pay later. People are just loaded with debt in a lot of areas from credit.

Another topic is the issue with the effects of college costs. Brad explained that with college, you have students who take twenty-forty thousand dollar student loans and they’re going away to college enrolled in a program that may not be marketable. That’s’ where there is a challenge. A cost-benefit assessment needs to be done before they take on that kind of debt. If not, it is necessary to reassess whether one should go in that degree field, take that loan, or even go to college at all.

There are many more helpful financial insights that may of use to you or someone you know!

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Lisa Antonini

The spotlight shines on guest Lisa Antonini, the “Criminal Justice Reform Advocate” of “Concrete Pillow,” who earned both her Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice and her Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Everest University. Her journey in reform began when a family member became incarcerated under the “Felony Murder Rule,” more commonly known as the “FMR.” She explained that under the “FMR,” it states that if you are present during the commission of a crime, and in the commission of that crime someone were to lose their life, you, as well as everyone else there, will be charged with first-degree felony murder. (Florida statutes and several other states). She then went on to become a “Criminal Justice Reform Advocate” with “Concrete Pillow” and utilizes her production company “Beach Bum Productions, LLC” to further offer education and an experience, but not legal advice, as there are no attorneys there, to those who experience a loved one incarcerated for a crime they did not commit.

Here are a couple of excerpts from the show:

Lisa shared- “So, while all this was going, on I’m going to call libraries and I’m trying to absorb as much as I can about the felony murder rule… and learn what I can …and find out if there’s a way that I could count that I can, got to be able to do something. And I ended up going back to college and I ended up with associate’s degree, bachelor’s degree, and then a master’s degree in “Criminal Justice” so that I could really understand this.”

Lisa talked about her family member- “he was 18 years old at the time and he was with some friends. A friend had called asking for a favor and he got a group of other friends together to help this other friend out, and I wasn’t there, I can’t tell you exactly everything that took place during that meeting but, I can tell you that someone was there who was armed, he had a gun and one of the many ended up shot.” Rebecca asked, “Okay, let’s just stop right there so that we can make sure this is really clear. So here’s a situation where you have a family member that is in an area, he himself did not have a weapon but, somebody else did.”

The situation Lisa describes becomes more clear during the show and there is a lot of information that may be new to you. Often times, we go about our lives without enough knowledge about various things and use information passed onto us from what we hear. You may have heard the term “ignorance is no excuse of the law.” Meaning just because you did not know, does not mean you are excused from it. Therefore, what we can and cannot do and how it will affect us is important to know. In the event we find there is something that is unjust, then we have the knowledge and choice to decide if we want to take the steps to make a specific law change or “become just.” Though in the meantime, we still must abide by the law. We cannot sit and complain about something we do not know accurate information about or do not want to put the effort in to learn and expect to understand or have changes made. We have to become educated and use the legal process to make a change. We may not necessarily always like the way the justice system works, but this is our system and we are the best nation in the world.
Lisa is an example of one who made the decision to become educated on the legal system and laws, began taking steps to make a change, and offer support to educate others. Check out the show! This is very informative!

Before entering the entertainment world, Nikita served his city by becoming a police officer and eventually retiring as a Detective Sergeant of the Baltimore Police Department after 27 years of exemplary service. His first break in entertaining came in the form of professional wrestling with the friendship of WWE Hall of Famer Nikolai Volkoff during his time as a Detective Sergeant. The friendship evolved into a manager/protégé partnership that would guide these two comrades for 11 years. At times, Nikita donned the tights and the two would tag team. He was an officer of the law by day and wrestler by night. It was the love of pro wrestling that led Nikita to entertain. After he retired, Nikita began acting full time in films, such as “Brush with Danger,” “The Wrestler,” and “Heroes of Wrestling,” and also appearing in documentaries. Nikita is the author of “When it Was Real,” taking you back to an era when wrestling was presented from an entertaining but legitimate competition manner and from two perspectives – a starry-eyed fan and as the manager and tag team partner of the legendary Nikolai Volkoff.

During the show Jeffrey talks about the things many people don’t talk about when it comes to giving out financial strategy. Here is an excerpt from the show…
“we are hyper yield interest rate dividend focus, but we are not stock market specifics, so the average portfolio in our office here will be generating greater than a five percent net yield after fees, but there’ll be 85 percent uncorrelated or disconnected entirely from the stock market if not more than that as a percentage and so that is where folks today should be modern with their money.” Now if you are feeling a bit confused here is something Jeffrey says that you may never have heard an advisor say, “I always tell everybody is they should go out and find three advisors, I even tell my my own perspective or potential customers this, they should find three advisors, they should show them their best their best risk off approach with their highest yield arrived, and so if they can get a four or five percent net yield and be risk off and that’s a good advisor.” Jeffrey goes into so much detail about how the current state of the economy may affect you and how you can address it. The great thing about it is he is able to explain this in a way that is easy to understand and may allow you to rethink how you want to strategize your finances.

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Jessica Gerlach

A couple of quick questions for you. Do you know or have you been affected by anyone from opioid addiction? Have you ever wanted to understand what opioid addiction is, the effects, and what is involved in recovery?

This powerful episode brings expert guest, Jessica Gerlach, who is quite an influential screenwriter, producer, author, public speaker, opioid addiction advocate, spiritual gangster, actress, model, and experienced deputy director. Jessica graduated from “The American College of Journalism,” “the National Guild of Hypnotists,” and “The National Federation of NeuroLinguistic Programming.” She has strong writing skills and is quite accomplished in negotiation, branding, marketing, advertising, film, and documentaries. During the show, Jessica details how her film “The Sixteen Movie” tackles the opioid crisis in the United States. She shares how the “film specifically revolves around 16-year-olds who recreationally use the drug. First, they start out taking pills, then they steal from their parents or their brother or sister, and then one by one the whole group of friends who were once healthy, vivacious, high achieving teenagers, each become addicted. The film literally shows the path of destruction that each of them lives out and it’s all very different scenarios, but there they literally experience the dark underworld of heroin and fentanyl addiction. So, it shows prostitution, overdose, HIV, murders, robbery gone wrong, murder… I mean you name it, it’s… it’s in the film. Anything that can go wrong with a nasty addiction like that, we portray a very real intense- raw view of what that addiction looks like in action.”

This episode is a must-see for many reasons. If you are looking for help with addiction, this is a great place to begin to get a broader understanding of what you may be facing and where to get help. If you have a friend or loved one you want to get help, this will give you a better understanding of what they may be facing and where to get resources.

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Jay David

When you hear the word success, what comes to mind? The guest in this episode, renowned Jay David, who is an accomplished drummer, singer, songwriter, musician, actor, recovery counselor, and speaker, has dazzled the audience in numerous performances, including his position with Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show and he will dazzle you too! Jay shares how his love and talent for music began. His first appearance was at the age of two and a half. (He will tell you more about it on the show!)! This show intertwines his life’s journey as climbs and rises to the peak of fame and what was to follow. Jay is a hoot to listen to as he talks about being at Mercury Records in New York City

“I was playing whenever all of the songwriters (they had about a hundred fifty songwriters) and whenever the songwriters would come up with a song that management thought was good, they went and they had me come in and record the drum parts for it. Then, along with two other instruments, it would just be a trio, and somebody would sing it. That’s how they would shop those songs to other artists that were looking for material in those days (this being the late 60s) and so I was in the studio all the time. Then I began singing the songs too. Then I began playing the piano, then the drums and things. So I was I was very busy. And one day this producer came in and he said, “Hey Jay! Listen to this song! And he played me a song called, “The Last Morning,” and he said, “This is a new group called, “Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show,” and they don’t have a drummer. They’re looking for a drummer. Do you want to go?” Well, I was the staff drummer.”

Later the group went to Columbia Records to meet with Clive Davis. While waiting amongst others and wanting to stand out so as to get a contract, here is what Jay said he did: “I walked behind his desk and took his trash can and turned it upside down and Dennis Andrade took that acoustic guitar and I played the trash can. That’s how we did our audition; in his office. The next day they signed us to a $750,000 deal.” Jay also shared how there were challenges with the BBC and what they would not let air due to possible copyright infringement and a “word” in a song, all of which he details and you will find quite interesting when you tune in!

Jay has recently been in some films and has released his “hilarious and insightful” new parody, “The Cover of the AARP,” on the album “This Road,” which includes originals and songs by Stephen Stills, Joe Egan (Steeler’s Wheel), and JJ Cale.

There is a lot to glean from this episode. For example, through perseverance, envisioning a dream, then pursuing that dream, you CAN achieve it! Jay says, “I’m a drummer for life. I always have been. I always will be and I’ll always make music. I have a little recording studio in my house here and I’ll be recording later today- JayDavismusic.com.”

Rebecca Sounds Reveille with Theresa Chaze and Brad Williams

In this episode, guest Theresa Chaze, who is a writer, director, producer, and editor, with several credits to her name talks about her unscripted TV series, Horses and Heroes, which combines highly effective Peer Support Therapy with Equine Therapy. Unlike most in the genre, it will focus on healing and positive growth rather than endorsing bad behavior. They will be sharing their challenges and supporting each other as they find new solutions to their physical and emotional challenges. Theresa talks about how she’s supporting the veterans of the United States military who have served and how they work together to find new coping skills for their physical and emotional challenges. The emphasis will be on the veterans because they are people, they are not disposable parts of the war machine. She shares how veterans “need permission to seek help” as so many don’t because they think the ramifications will hurt their careers. “You’ve got this reputation of being tough guys and tough guys just sucked it up.” Theresa also has two other films that may also pique your interest: Never Can Say Good-bye tells the parallel storylines of the past and the present as the reincarnated souls are forced to decide between forgiveness and seeking the revenge they were denied in the past. Chalice Island is a Gothic Horror, which is comparable to the original Dark Shadows TV series. Jacqueline’s capacity to love is only exceeded by her need for vengeance after she finds her mother raped and murdered. When a source of evil offers both her and her brother the means to gain revenge, she enthusiastically embraces the dark arts. https://cproduction5.wixsite.com/cosmos-productions-

Topping the second half of the show, returning financial expert and Founding President & CEO of Brad Williams Financial Services, LLC, guest Brad Williams, has over 25 years of experience and addressing financial concerns of retirees and business owners. He has very strong communication skills, is very personable, and he likes to focus on the clients’ concerns, and address what is important to them. On the show, we talk about how right now, “money stress,” is what a lot of people are losing sleep over and the possible causation. For example, our fast-paced society and being always connected digitally allows easy accessibility to consumer goods and constant marketing tactics that spur people to “act now,” without really paying too much attention to “how much it is going to cost.” The debt stacks ups quickly and only later the consumer realizes they may have overextended themselves.

Brad talks about how everything should be all about return on investment and that might only be return on investment for your own relaxation. You’ are going to spend money or take the time off to recharge, that’s good, that’s what you should do, but it’s also about things like college and college is one of those big expenses that people stress over. Brad suggests one of the best things is to sit down and write out the general life plan you hope to accomplish at the end of your life, write yourself a narrative on what you would like people to say about you what did, then figure out over the next five years what you want, such as a new car, a house, a trip to Europe, a hundred thousand in the bank, or some goal, and then ask, “okay how do I do that?” If my five-year goal is to save a hundred thousand dollars, then not counting interest, that means I need to save twenty thousand dollars a year, is that practical? There is a lot more! Tune in and find out how to take off some of the financial stress that you may be facing.

Oddly as it may seem, it was through a random phone call that an invitation was made to Brian to be on a film set for a few weeks and that mesmerized him. That invitation and experienced was so awe-inspiring, he was hooked. Brian has been working a few productions in various stages and is always looking to collaborate. His drive and passion for filmmaking, acting, directing, and screenwriting can not only be seen but is encapsulated within his work.

This is a fun show that talks with and about a friendship between this duo that is so uplifting and inspirational, it will not only invoke you to watch their film, but you may just wanna start a project with a loved one yourself! It truly makes you smile! The two are quite infectious!!! https://www.facebook.com/DeathAndCompromise
