This week I spoked to actor and influencer Veronika Dash about moving beyond the typecast, learning through mistakes, and the importance of timing.
Veronika graduated, Magna Cum Laude, from the ‘School Of Dramatic Arts’ at the prestigious University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre. Upon graduation, she has become bicoastal, traveling between New York City and Los Angeles to work on upcoming pilots, films, and theater projects.
In her latest work, Dash can be seen alongside Jane Fonda and Harvey Keitel in the feature film "Youth," or La Giovinezza, directed by Oscar-Winner Paolo Sorrentino.Read More
I sat down with filmmaker and thinker Michael Morgenstern to talk about his fascination with truth, the Internet, and how reality is becoming more and more warped each day. I found our discussion to be both terrifying and fascinating, but hearing how creative Michael gets in his pursuit of art is nothing short of inspiring to me.Read More
This week I spoke to Jenna Hage-Hassan of 4Thought Studios, an app development company based out of Detroit.
Her and her team are working to change the narrative about digital technology and how it can benefit our lives, and are launching their first app to try and help Detroiters find more places around the city to explore. We had a lovely conversation about all that she’s up to, and she explained how she’s taken the unorthodox path to tech through two geology degrees, one in Lebanon(!).Read More
Cody Wheat is a Brand Ambassador for Sazerac, so basically his job is to be an evangelist for bourbon, and he also hosts the Shots of History podcast, in which he does these amazing deep-dives into the history of different spirits. So basically the dude knows booze, and as a minimal drinker myself, I'm a total novice.Read More
Ben Brown reached out to me over a year ago after hearing about the podcast and noticing the chance for collaboration. We chatted, and our shared vision for a future where young people had more of a role in policymaking was inspiring.Read More
This is a little bit of a different episode.
Ben Lee interviewed me for his podcast, Rootstrap Radio, and I had so much fun with it that we decided to run it on the MDS feed as well. We dug down deep into the world of podcasting, our crazy political landscape, and life as a 20-something Angeleno. Check out his podcast and give it a subscribe if you enjoy.
As I discuss further on the pod, my family home burned down last week. So, I apologize for the lack of posting/communicating from our various channels the past 10 days or so. These are trying times, but we are thankful for the chance to rebuild and move forward.Read More
