Art & Life with Doctor TV

Today we’d like to introduce you to Doctor TV.

Doctor, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I’m a songwriter, filmmaker and theater producer in the greater LA area. I am from out here, I was born in Westlake Village which is north of LA by 30 or so miles. So, being so close, the LA Dream was a reality from a young age.

A lot of people know me as an actor. I began acting in a local Shakespeare company’s mainstage shows at 13. This prompted me to switch from a traditional education to independent study, which changed my entire outlook on life and creating art. Summer after my graduation, I was cast in my first series regular role in “HUGE” on ABC Family. After that, I’ve been lucky enough to work steadily through my early twenties, landing a significant gig as a series regular on CBS’s Scorpion which ended it’s four year run in 2018. That job allotted me the resources to start producing my own material, which has spanned multiple mediums from original music and film to returning to Shakespeare in a new unpretentious way. OK, a little pretentious.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
My latest album “Jacuzzi Louie” is all about loss, and the silly things we do to fix ourselves in order to feel literally anything except change.

I use this as an example mainly because the music in the album is fun and festive; however, the lyrics are self-reflective and melancholy. I love art about the pain of being alive, of messing everything up, of being a human.

I relish in the cosmic joke and I think we could all learn a great deal from the folks who’ve turned their pain into pleasure for the rest of us. In my work, I strive to do that, to take what ails me and turn it into an experience that connects with people.

How do you think about success, as an artist, and what do quality do you feel is most helpful?
I feel like success comes to the people who remain constant in trying to better their craft, and challenge themselves. Success is growth, so it’s really a state of mind.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
