Great meeting where I spoke to the mayor of Redondo Beach and The Redondo Beach Youth Commission. I told them how Russians own the largest medical marijuana company in America (Curaleaf), how Big Tobacco is invested in Big Marijuana and all about the mental health risks associated with pot use.
Kirk and I were so glad when NBCLA wanted to do a segment about a screening of our short film which screened at an event by a homeless organization called MB Safe. NBCLA has an ongoing series about the homeless crisis called Streets of Shame. The concern of NBCLA for the people who are suffering on our streets made them the perfect news organization to cover our story. Angie Crouch, the reporter, has deep empathy for the people she interviews. Thank you to Marla, Tommy and Angie.
Manhattan Beach Safe is a resident-based organization helping the homeless. In January we are having a screening of the short film followed by an expert panel discussion on addiction, mental illness and homelessness. Click HERE to register for this free event and find more information.
It was so great to have our student-led short film premiere at a local festival here in Hermosa Beach. Our screening had a great turnout and the response from the audience was quite favorable. It was exciting for all of us in the cast and crew to see it on a big screen. Onward!
Very excited to say we’ve been accepted to our first film festival! We will be with a block of shorts on Saturday, October 19 at 2 PM. Ethan and I and our cast and crew are so grateful for all the local support we have received–and it doesn’t get more local than a cool film festival in Hermosa Beach!

My good friend (and big supporter), Jacqueline T.D. Huynh, has this great podcast where she talks about all issues related to parenting. One of her big messages is building wealth, not just money, through the generations. Fun chat. A lot of the presentation I gave at the ASAP conference is in this podcast.
