When Derek Blanks was shooting his "Alter Ego" series, he asked me what I envisioned for myself, and I had no clue. I was, however, going through a tough time, where I was just so disillusioned with the Entertainment Industry. I went for a hike and thought about it, thinking that you need such tough skin to shield your true self from the hate, rejection and bullshit you deal with on a daily basis. The fraudulent friendships, the empty promises... they begin to weigh on your soul and threaten to change you. And so a picture started to form in my head: my two selves, the tough, indestructible version of myself who protects the vulnerable, transparent self. My heart being exposed as a reopened wound was done in post production. Everything else is makeup. And brilliant. The talent I worked with that day executed my vision beyond expectation.
