Happy New Year Everybody!
Having successfully moved my family and business from Santa Monica to Chicago, I am now back from my self-imposed, life-cycle sabbatical.
It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a year since my last post, but such is the nature of uprooting and re-rooting. I realized not too long ago that I no longer needed to live in LA to be in the entertainment business, since most of my business is by referral or word-of-mouth; meaning I do more business with the people who call me than the people I meet with (the latter of whom generally just want to pick my brain.) The film business started in Chicago and the city continues to have world class crews, talent, studios, resources, tax credits, capital, and more!
I look forward to elevating the industry dialogue with you all.
