  • [on his first leading role in Franko (2010)] In the process of making this film, I experienced every aspect of film making, from the beginning till the end. I can definitely say that I really enjoyed knowing how it feels to be on the casting side, behind the camera and in front for the matter. Having gone through the process, it's a privilege to me as an actor and director to hear or say the word ACTION.
  • [on his script Franko] The original award winning script was 22 pages long, but it was cut significantly due to budget constraints.
  • [on writing Franko] It all started with a vision, a cursor blinking on a blank final draft page and hope. This project came about after a failed audition. The chances of me getting cast in a role of a life time went from slim to none. So, I decided to take a stab at developing my own material. Mind you I've never written before, but I had a clue on how to begin. Thanks to Google.
  • [on auditioning] Can't live with 'em can't live without 'em. I remember drinking Yerba Mate right before an audition. Caffeine, what a bad move. I felt so anxious when speaking to the point where my tongue felt too large and won't move fast enough in order to make the words come out. The CD thought I was special.
