Newark Comic Con: The Original Gata

Tell me a little bit about yourself and your brand?

I myself and my brand are one in the same... and that comes down to unbridled, unlimited insanity... the wild crazy and unacceptable is my artistic play ground. If I can do it I can do it and do it well I wanted it on my artist and professional resume.

What made you decide to get into your field?

I didn't chose a field it chose me... My joy outside of my children and my family is my work and my craft... I had no choice if I wanted to be happy in the least bit. Entertaining has been a passion for as long as I can remember.

What is the vision of your field? What do you hope to achieve?

The scope of my field is nearly endless... If I can imagine it, I can see it. it's sheer possibility.... and I think I want what every artist/performing artist wants to leave a body of work that stands for all time.... not good or bad.... lasting.... something that says to those who care to know.... I was here...

What is your favorite work you have done thus far? Why?

That depends on my mind set at the moment.... I have so many... I think right now it is my short, Shadowhunters: DevilSpeak that hasn't been release as of yet... I learned directing under fire...I also produced and starred in it as well.

My second favorite would be the production and modeling of my Comicbook "Tha Original Gata" which has my big brother Tony Todd in it, as well as ECW wrestler Tommy Dreamer and a multitude of other talents.

Tells us more about "Tha Original Gata, Cat O Nine Tale"? What else do you have coming out soon?

The 'Gata' project is a Graphic Novel in the spirit of the classic pulp fiction genre (which gave birth to comic-books) it's also very much like a movie series as it has models/actors lending their image to the work... we are still perfecting the format and market testing because we really want the fans to get what they are looking for... a nice marriage of great story... incredible art work and faces they know to bring an extra element to the voices in the story.

What do you have coming out in the near future? 

It's hard to say what's coming out next beyond the short film 'Devil Speaks' ... so much finished work can be release at anytime.... some never at all... but you can look for fun popcorn horror, books and comics and music and wrestling and photos and cos-play and T.V and any other creative outlet I can manage.

I will say also that I've been doing a lot more in the wrestling field with Tommy Dreamer's promotion, House of Hardcore as we just debuted the show in Toronto Canada. I can also be seen with the promotion on the fight network.

What is your website? Contact information? 

I have an extremely supportive fanbase on social media and I am always VERY appreciative. I interact with my fans regularly because without them, I'm nothing.

I'd also like to say that, I was always told that I couldn't earn a living in this business having children. Well, I have 10 children, run 4 businesses, act, cosplay,wrestle, model, sing and a flurry of other things whilst raising my children. I love the fact that my job is something I LOVE doing. My children are my driving force and the reason why I CAN do it all. Never allow anyone to take your fire from you. Keep pushing past your obstacles to get what you want in life. It's not easy, but its certainly worth it!
