He is very much looking forward to producing The Long Walk. Bringing mental health to the forefront in a positive and uplifting way. The film explores negative mental health and psychosis, which is very dear to his heart. This is a passion project that will resonate with a lot of people especially in these difficult times. The message of the film - REACH OUT, DON’T STAY SILENT, ASK FOR HELP.
If he helps just one person all his efforts will be worthwhile. He is a animal lover and enjoys of all food, especially avocados and cheese.
