Artist’s statement & Bio

My passion for filmmaking, writing and acting is rooted so incredibly deep inside of my heart and beyond the realms of my soul. Writing, creating, this is an innate process to our nature as human beings, and though some choose to attain the mastery of these blatant art forms: film, literature, painting, music, etc., these means of expression are meant for all on some level in order to evolve as individuals.

As an artist my duty is to walk the, at times, treacherous and blissful paths of life coherently and through this perpetual process I shall continually attain a better understanding of myself and society as whole thus bringing us together in the form of true entertainment on an individual level; because within our uniqueness and individuality is an energetic unity and shared experience stemming from the same ego driven fears, self-righteous demeanor and existential dilemmas – our tragedies are all shared and this is why art supersedes time by simply exploiting them, like an introspective journal shared shamelessly. Purposeful art delivers thought-provoking means of expression, shaking the audience, having them in either tears or immense laughter or both simultaneously; emotionally imperative creations from the conscious-unconscious creative soul have the audience reevaluate their morals and make them too capable of ingeniousness. Blood-trailed creations leave us with this solid reminder: Life is about constantly rediscovering your True Self in the frequently-visiting treacherous abyss over and over and over again, trekking through to the ambient light, therefore endlessly overcoming by simply making peace with what is – this is courageous fearlessness; taking sufferings and expelling them upon the canvas. The best art comes from pain and the best flowers come from rain.

Now that you know how truly well-thought I am as to what I do, let me tell you my accolades: I’m an autodidact (self-taught) artist that has self-produced over 30 films (including 4 features and a lot of long shorts). In these films I write, direct, act, do the cinematography, editing, sound, and in my most recent feature film I even composed the original score; this is something I will now be doing for the rest of my career. I’ve published 10 books varying between philosophy, poetry, comedic essays, academic, and narrative fiction – I have several more books in the works. I’ve written  hundreds of screenplays, quite a few plays, and I’ve starred in off-Broadway productions as well.

I created my company LowWiseZah Studios in order to generate my own original content, both visual and literary, and also with the means of collaborating with other production companies and helping artists that share the same passionately persistent drive. I don’t think I have to say this due to the in-depth reasoning highlighted in this statement but I will: you won’t meet a more determined being than I.

I’m famous; my audience just hasn’t found me yet… but they will.   And I might already be famous but I didn’t yet change this statement/bio, so if that’s the case, omit that… though the saying does ring endless. But just so I don’t forget, let me just say: I’m fuckin’ famous. Thank you!

With immense gratitude,
