I have been interested in the world of entertainment since my early youth. It started with making home videos back in Cleveland, Ohio. Soon after, I found myself dreaming of an R&B singing career, but that shortly ended coming into my preteen life, realizing my voice was certainly not a mixture of Jesus and Fergie. However, around that same time, I discovered spoken word, and the adrenaline from being on stage, along with writing my own stories, assured me that entertainment is right where I belong. Read more>>

Amanda Ogen

Even though I am proud to be a modern independent woman, I also truly do not know how to do much of anything! I often joke that my ability to share conversation with anyone is my only real skill. Over time, I realized how challenging becoming an adult truly is without ever learning how to do most grown-up tasks – things like getting an oil change, installing a shelf, or even making hard-boiled eggs! When I could no longer avoid these tasks, I felt overwhelmed, frustrated, and anxious. Read more>>

Thiago Vitorio

I was born with a disease called otorrhea which caused my ears to constantly leak pus and blood. The doctors even told my mom that I would eventually experience total hearing loss. After six months old, I was healed and today I am a musician. It all started with my father. He always wished that we had a musician in our family. So, I was enrolled in violin, drums, trumpet, bass and guitar lessons, but gave up all of them. One day when I was ten, my mom decided to bring down a little keyboard that was abandoned on top of our wardrobe. Read more>>

Beau Clarke

I’m from a Ventura, California -a small suburban surf town north of L.A. I started writing stories as soon as I learned how to write in the first grade. In high school, I surfed a lot and rarely made it to class. I surfed a lot and never got good grades. At one point, I wanted to be a professional surfer and competed in contests around the country. I wasn’t as talented as some of the other kids though. So that dreamed died out quickly. It was fun while it lasted. But when I finished high school. Read more>>

Laura Linda Bradley

I’ve been a working actor in LA for over ten years, and in that time I’ve seen first hand the advantages and disadvantages actors face daily due to finances, location, opportunities, etc. I started What’s My Frame? with one simple goal, to help actors take their careers into their own creative hands. Acting can be a very isolating career, but if we change our mindset from being in competition with fellow actors to working with each other to build a creative community; it’s a completely different journey. Read more>>

James Rogers III

I was born and raised in Compton, California. I always knew I wanted to be a storyteller, but didn’t think that was real for someone like me. I traveled to UC Berkeley and got exposed heavy theories on film, gender, and race. I also went to college with my dad…together. At the same time. Which was awesome. We took a film studies class together, and the rest was history – I knew I wanted to write. Read more>>

Jay Ticker

I began working in Media as an advertising sales agent. Six months into the job, I was offered the opportunity to write for a new men’s online platform and I accepted. A year later, I was promoted to an editor position. Six months fast forward and I was laid off. The company sold. I went homeless and went back to school for journalism. I got back on my feet and began my own company. That company eventually turned into The Ticker Report. Read more>>
