Perhaps you may recognize me from my media appearances as an expert in the area of body language ( 20/20. Dancing With the Stars, Today Show, CNN, FOX, GMA, RadarOnline etc) or from reading one of my many top-selling books ( Toxic People, He Says She Says, Talk to Win, The Body Language of Liars). Now I have taken my skill set as communication and body language expert which I have also used in my capacity as an expert witness for court cases) and have now applied my knowledge in a new field- that of being a director and producer.
I dreamed of being a film director and producer my entire life. But I never thought it would be possible since I had already established and myself throughout the years as one of the leading authorities in the area of communication and body language. giving lectures throughout the world on the topic and being called upon by the media on a regular basis to discuss the body language of news makers ( celebrities, world leaders, and criminals). I have also had a very successful private practice where I have worked with A-list actors ( Sean Connery, Dustin Hoffman, Dolly Parton, Andy Garcia, Forest Whitaker, Nicholas Cage, Mickey Rourke, Rene Russo, Will Smith, Marlee Matlin) helping them with their speech voice and body language in preparation for their specific film roles.
That experience was invaluable and helped to prepare me for my new career as a director/producer.
As a first time director, I have discovered that my ability to read people has been invaluable. The main reason I was able to transition to this new field and live my own dream was because I was inspired by Rosalee. If she could live her dream, I could live mine- just like you can live your dream.
Doing this film has been the most exciting experience in my life. I feel as though I am doing what I am meant to do.At this stage of my life, based on all of my experience, I feel as though I have a lot to bring to the table, especially in terms of helping to understand the human condition.
While “Reinventing Rosalee” is my debut film I plan to not only do other documentary films, but to direct and produce feature films as well.
