"G" At Greenwich

"G" my green orgonite device transmutes and resonates positivity. This afternoon, me and Jerald decided to have some pasta and chicken at the nearest Greenwich Pizza Restaurant near our house. 

While waiting for our orders I can't help but notice this on our table that says "share a positively overloaded experience -g-". Sychronicity at its best.

Thank you Chuy

Without Clanch Dayve Belleza, there won't be a Jerald playing the part of Darrell Nuñez in the soon to be shown international movie 100 Yards. 

It was him who contacted me to send some headshots of Jerald. As casting director, he always kept in touch. During the early days of the movie shoot, he would give some tips for Jerald on what to do and not to do during his scene takes. 

"Chuy" as he would like us to call him is an award winning Cebuano director. His movie Julie won awards in the U.S. and film festivals here in the country. I worked with him in Julie where I played the role as HR manager. Thanks Chuy for everything and more power.

Jerald and Chuy
