I've had the privilege to be welcomed into a world created by a community of men within the walls of San Quentin State Prison. The Shakepeare at San Quentin program encourages incarcerated men to explore their gifts as storytellers and actors. In the process, they recover very human parts of themselves that were crushed or discarded along the often difficult way of their lives. I shot and edited a 37 minute short film on the program and am working of funding and producing a feature length documentary film on the multitude of ways incarcerated people are rewriting their life stories. The effort has a website here.

  Below is a 5 minute introduction to an amazing actor, inmate and human being who has a past... and a future.
