In one word, what was most important to keep in your piece from the last?


What kind of work do you usually make? 

I am an actor exploring film-making. I am also an agent and represent about 180 actors. Singing in the shower has also led me to audition for musicals - they prefer however I sing only in the chorus.

Any projects on the horizon?

My focus is currently on my alter ego James Scott - a younger version of myself - who creates entertaining movies/clips/memories for my older self. By using the hashtag #beforeiforget he/I/we explore notions of memory loss by capturing memories on tape and storing them in our YouTube bank. Each video is accompanied by a written text on Wordpress.
