BIOGRAPHY

Just call me Leo

Born and raised in Central NJ, and graduated with a Musical Theater BFA from Montclair State University and an Acting in Film MFA at New York Film Academy's Los Angeles Campus. During my studies I created original music, resulting in collaborations with many filmmaking students for music videos. My first EP "Here I Am" is available on iTunes, Spotify, Shazam, and Apple Music, with music videos for 5 out of 6 songs, "Here I Am" shares my personal journey on how God saved my life, met me where I was at, loved me exactly the way I was, and still loves me exactly the way I am.

 

My journey is with God and to share that love with the LGBT community. LGBTQIA+ has been heavily burdened and affected by the Christian Community. I am here to speak how the love of God, as part of the LGBT community, has released burdens from my hearts through His unconditional love for me. Communicating on behalf of the LGBT community to the Christians is also important to me.  Christians need to know  that there are members of the LGBT community that love God and strive for a relationship. My goals include mending the burdens of both communities and unify the communities with love through the transparency of my journey.

After winning multiple accolades from Internationally acclaimed film festivals for my music videos, I have been blessed to share my testimony at various Gay Pride events across the country. I have traveled with my excellent dancers performing coast to coast. I have witnessed LGBTQIA+ members become emotionally vulnerable and in that moment have their hearts changed to continue pursuing a relationship with God. Seeing how God uses everything to glorify Him is the gift that keeps me doing what I do and why I fall in love with it more and more each day.

I have been signed with Diversity Talent Agency, representing the organization NACA(North American Campus Activities) which connects entertainment to college campuses. I have my music and music videos streaming on REVRY the world's first fully LGBTQIA streaming service. I am working on new music for release in 2019 further explaining the depth of my relationship with God, as well as the struggles of being a human being working through heartbreak, old habits, and other various struggles..
