Knock knock knock.
Sometimes things come together in a beautiful dovetail.
You wind up in Maine, doing a show. You meet people you love. I mean LOVE.
You book a lead in a movie. While on that job. Then you realize you need to see some of them as much as humanly possible. Because you’re moving back to LA.
