Products & Support

As a 360 Creative Coach, I believe it’s important that I practice what I preach. During my life, I’ve been privileged to work on all kinds of different artistic projects. However, most of them were for other people. Recently, I’ve began to focus on my own projects, whether films, books, etc. If you’ve heard my lessons, you know I’m a strong advocate of supporting artists. I put my heart and soul into each piece of work and it’d mean the world to me if you made a purchase.

In addition to my creative work, I’ve also included other ways to support me and my ambitions.

The good news is that all of these in turn help you out. How? Well, the more financial pressure that’s lifted thanks to patrons like you, the more time I can devote to my teachings and coaching practice.

Thank you.

Movie:

Love MarketThis is my directorial debut. Creatively, I was inspired by Wong Kar-wai’s Chungking Express because it’s such a bold film that takes so many artistic risks and they pay off. And from a narrative standpoint, there’s a variety of characters that go about their lives but they all bump into each other at a late-night restaurant. I felt I could utilize Downtown LA and Grand Central Market specifically in such a way. The synopsis for the film is: An uninspired lawyer, his enthusiastic protégé, and an aspiring musician look for romance. The three are forced to face their pasts and rethink their futures.
