If you haven’t heard already, by March 2nd I’m leaving LA for good. Well at least for now. When I had a visit back home, I felt like there was so much going on in NY and so much work for me if I was there. I was happy, having fun with people outside the business and around people who were CREATING. I was a little sad coming back to LA because there wasn’t much going on for me here. It felt like everything was a struggle. But I kept on saying “I can’t leave until I get what I came her for.” I came to LA to be a movie star. I truly believed it would happen for me here.
Then on Feb 1st I was in a car accident. A woman ran the red light and t-boned me, with the impact of the hit moving my car off the road onto the sidewalk nearly missing a woman walking her dog. I was injured and as a sat in the hospital alone, I thought. I’m done. I’m done being alone in LA. I can do this in NY. At first I felt like I would be starting over, but when I started to tell me close friends and colleagues they were excited and I even got a job…in New York!
The funny thing is, I came to LA to be a movie star and I haven’t made it quite yet, but LA gave me all the tools I need to become a movie producer. Right now I’m the lead producer on a feature film that shoots in New Orleans in April with an all star cast and I get to call the shots. Everything I have done in the past has prepared me for this moment.
