What motivated you to become a producer and a screenwriter?
As a young kid, my dream was always to be an actor, after seeing Bruce Lee in Enter the Dragon. So after I retired from the Marines following 20 years of service, I decided to pursue that dream. What made me want to be a screenwriter was the fact that there were no scripts being written that would cast a person of color or give them a chance to be a lead or even to have a supporting role. I wanted to change that and create stories and films with a diverse cast.
