Seeing my name on the big screen or in lights will never get old. For me it’s another example of how my dedication and commitment in this business are paying off. On Saturday April 25th, I was the proud presenter for the category of Feature – Best Director at the third annual 2015 International Christian Film Festival (ICFF). The room was filled with talented Christian believers (actors, directors, producers, casting directors, etc.) It was so refreshing to see projects such as The Masked Saint which won Best Film. It was clean and family friendly, not riddled with profanity and explicit sexual content. As a fellow actor I was not only proud of the work but felt great that my family could view and enjoy the projects as well.
I had the pleasure of meeting actor Stephen Baldwin star of the UnMiracle and one of Hollywood’s famed Baldwin brothers. Brett Granstaff, who played Chris in the Masked Saint, was was such a joy to chat with. The lovely and ever so kind Mrs. Florida – Courtney Shaw. This woman is beautiful inside and out and she’s a woman of God. Her kindness and her words of encouragement will forever be etched in my heart. Finally my former co-host Rosie Caratinni. Rosie has been a huge supporter and encourager of mine since we met. Rosie is a great example of what it means to live a true and faith filled life making her an inspiration to me. I also had the pleasure of meeting for the first time Kibwe Dorsey and Wade Williams, wonderful men!
What would this journey be without the best partner a girl could ask for, my loving and ever so supportive husband and number one fan, Edwin Martinez.
