Hello everyone, I feel very honored to be here to introduce myself to you and this community. My name is Devin. I am in my 40s and I am a musician, documentary filmmaker, writer, and I DJ at a FM radio show out of the bay area. To describe my disability would be somewhat hard to explain. I don’t know if there is a name for it other than congenial birth defect. I guess like most here, I was born vary original. And like others, I feel that my disability is something that could be considered unique￼ but I know we all share similar experiences, My work has taken me all over the world and I can honestly say that my wheelchair has been places where only a few have even walked. I have lived in Europe, Asia. The Caribbean, and literally everywhere in the states. I speak a few languages vary badly like Czech and Thai. I really love this forum and the conversations that people are having. I hope to meet interesting people here and learn more about myself and my place in this crazy world.￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼
Welcome to PD! What are some of the films you've made? What sort of writing do you do? Sounds like you've been living the creative's dream!
well thats a full question. the last documentary i was working on is about a successful thai engineer that become a buddhist monk and converted an abandoned monastery into a hospice/clinic for rural HIV and tuberculosis patients. but the film is somewhat on hold. i've been working with an old drummer of mine turned screenwriter on some scripts. one is called "the underdog" and its basically me traveling around the world interviewing disabled people who have accomplished amazing things in the world of entertainment, finance, or sport. the other is a simi autographical comedy based on my time living and performing in venice beach.
