MY BIG PASSIONATE WHY:
What has driven me beyond Passionate to do this:
The Pay it Forward Experience Foundation was Founded by Charley Johnson who I have had the honor of interviewing and spending some quality time with… Since then my RADAR for Pay it Forward people, acts, organizations etc… has deeply magnified not that it wasn’t a daily priority before I met Charley…
This has driven me to become massively PASSIONATE about making this Documentary a stellar resource for all of these amazing people and or organizations and companies that are doing Paying it Forward acts and programs etc… yet nobody knows about each other..
Paying it Forward has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, even my mother would tell me stories of when I was young of me giving quarters to people. The further why…
Growing up with lots of physical and medical problems, and having 30 surgeries to date, makes one appreciate self and others on a whole other level.
An even bigger wake up call was when I missed the WTC-World Trade Center Tower bombings, by one hour, I went to work one hour later because a client called me the night before to cancel our appointment and normally I would have still gone in early because I only commuted into NYC-WTC, Monday thru Thursday’s. On, Sept. 11th, that day I choose not to go in early and got to the train station and they said you are NOT going to work today…
No matter what was going on in my life I was still a very Loving, Passionate, Giving, Positive person. Yes, I am human and I did go thru my phases of intense anger… I unfortunately would take that anger out on my myself, my body…
So… my BIG WHY is if I can still be standing, alive, passionate, loving, and positive and I did my recovery literally almost by myself ANYBODY CAN DO IT… and I have learned beyond a shadow of a doubt that it takes Authenticity, Trust, Compassion, Passion, Sharing, COLLABORATION and TEAM WORK to do it…
Thus, the making of this Documentary showing amazing people of all walks of life impacting others thru “Paying it Forward – The Ripple Effect”

I encourage everyone to Watch the original movie:
“Pay it Forward” and to read the book “Pay it Forward” by Catherine Ryan Hyde, both of which have played a HUGE part in my choosing to create this documentary to keep the “Paying it Forward – The Ripple Effect” movement going…
