I thought my whole "Jack-of-All Trades, Master of Some" thing was just me being a doer. I just do. I do what it takes to get the job done. I found out later that's actually being a Producer. And so it began.

The above photo is from a reading of Matthew Ivan Bennett's "Let Down Your Hair," Directed by Jaimelyn Gray, at TUTA Theatre Chicago for TUTAlab.

In the fall of 2013, Luda Lopatina Solomon asked for some help. She was in need of an organizational specialist to help her open her own theatre company. I just so happen to be just that. As a producer, I've been a driving force behind making Bluebird Arts into Chicago's only English-Russian Theatre Company, producing two plays a year, once in English, then in Russian. A total of 9 PRODUCTIONS in just under 4 years as of right now. 

Bluebird Arts now a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization, a member of the Belmont Theatre District, a Resident Theatre Company of the Athenaeum Theatre, and intends to expand their reach globally through theatre, and eventually expand into film and dance.

Although mostly an actor for independent films, my theatre producing has lead me to be in talks with a friend of mine about starting a production company when he moves back to the area. His past projects include some excellent popular television programs and is currently working on a critically acclaimed project for Netflix.

Contact me for more information about script submission as we are currently looking for a potential first project.
