Happy Friday!

I'm super excited to share with you my latest film project. I know, I've been talking about this forever and a day (since last year!). So, I finally wanted to share it with you now that it's official.

For the past year or so, I have been talking to an award-winning director and her producers about a film they asked me to consult on for my expertise on mobile homes.

(Note: Special thanks to my good screenwriter friend, April M. Sanchez, for referring me and connecting us!)

So it's official: I'm a Mobile Home Consultant

And here is the director and her producers that I'm working with:

What's the film about?

IN TOW is an 18-minute fiction film that looks at the intersection of financial insecurity and mother-daughter relationships through action, humor, and drama. Based on personal experiences, IN TOW is about losing a home and finding it through the situations you least expect.
