Matthew 5 has that very well-known scripture that talks about being the light of the world, the city on a hill. A couple of years ago, a creative partner and I, Fred Vassallo, we started working on this project called 'Bright Ones', it's the fulfillment of a prophetic word over Bethel.

Both shows were mind-blowingly good. Both won a ton of acclaim and awards. Some might comment, with a theatrical flare, that they were "glorious". But were they, in the truest sense of the word, glorious?Read More
“You are only as good as your last job” one of my fellow actors said in between takes. Our backdrop was the breathtaking Greek Island of Santorini. This was my taste of a big budget Hollywood movie and I liked it. For the first time in a long time I felt alive and connected to my destiny.Read More
