“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well worn path; and that will make all the difference.”
- Steve Jobs
This journey began as a vision in my head and has grown to encapsulate nearly every past facet of my life. And for that, I am truly grateful.
This first took shape with my fellow actor, and now business partner, Cornelius, who took a chance on this “RINGER$” idea and said “let’s do it!”. The dots continued with screenwriting connections, from my next-door neighbor, to guide us after the pilot was written.
While moving to that next step, we added another member to our RINGER$ production team, Kris, an old friend from my Bowling Green State University days, who supported the idea so much that he agreed to be our Composer as well as Sound Engineer and Associate Producer.
From there, the dots began to snowball from the use of video equipment, to legal advice, illustrations, smoke machines, production company networking, church locations, priests portrayals, wardrobe support, not to mention the social media support as well as the tremendous financial offerings we have received so far.
The connection of these dots has been overwhelming and so oddly succinct that I cannot help but know that we are on the right track. And I am beyond excited to share with all of you how the dots will come together in the future.
