Interview with Julie on the Rocks


Last December I had the privilege to fly back home to Los Angles to collaborate on a new film for producers Dimitri Voutsinos, Mike Voutsinos and Juliana Provatakis - the host of a new series “Julie on the Rocks” in which she trades stories with fellow artists who have made the leap into the film industry.

While taking a break from filming our upcoming collaboration AXIOM (Coming Soon) we had time for a little chat and some California Pinot Noir.
