What I Do

For twelve years I worked as a special education teacher at the elementary level. Teaching kids with special needs taught me most of the most important things about being alive.

In June of 2016, I got a birthday trip to Thomas Land funded for one of my students with Autism named Kingston. I had the story published in the local paper which led to features from CBS and ABC news, which not only doubled our GoFundMe goal, but led to owners of Thomas Land flying myself and Kingston’s entire family out to Massachusetts where they closed down the park just for us to explore, as well as funded a week long vacation for us. Here is some news footage of the magic:

 

In August 2016, I stepped out of the classroom to make my first documentary film about the public education system with VeryApe productions in New York, a company run by my absolute favorite documentary filmmaker of all time, Sean Dunne. With his support and the support of a small team of filmmakers in Los Angeles, I am finally doing this. It’s called Sex(ed) and will be available, well, when we finish it.

I also write. I self-published a book called Handsome Vanilla. It’s on Amazon. And I act in projects I believe in.
