In this episode of the podcast Joe talks to actor Matt Pascua about the various communities he has in his life and the support each of them provide.

On the cusp of Pride Month 2021 Matt talks about the important role the LGBTQ+ community has played in his life. We also discuss the theatre community and our own social community of friends/family.

As we start to emerge from this global pandemic we need to ensure we are giving ourselves grace and space while reconnecting with our own communities.

Enjoy!

About Matt Pascua - 

MATT PASCUA first discovered his passion for acting in New York, where he trained at the Neighborhood Playhouse, Stetson Studio, and the William Esper Studio.

He began performing in staged readings, new works off-off-Broadway, and regional productions.  Simultaneously, he found opportunities in viral videos, primarily with CollegeHumor, as well as commercial, print, and voiceover work, including spots for MTV, VH1, and McDonald's and campaigns for Puma and the Meth Project.

Today, his growing resume now features primetime credits on ABC (Grey's Anatomy, Castle), Freeform (Bunheads), and Fox (Rosewood​).  He is an alum of the ABC Discovers Talent Showcase, which takes pride in Lupita Nyong’o, Chadwick Boseman, Randall Park, and many others as some of its previous selected artists.

His independent film work has seen nationwide theatrical release and the film festival circuit, most notably at the Cannes Film Festival (Anthony Meindl’s Where We Go From Here) and the Toronto International Film Festival (Jean-Marc Vallée’s Wild).  Projects of his can currently be streamed on Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Netflix.

Matt is a grateful member of Actors’ Equity and SAG-AFTRA.

In this episode of the podcast Joe talks to Kyle Gordon, founder of Dillas!

Joe and Kyle discuss the origin story for this unique Quesadillas-focused restaurant, Kyle's entrepreneurship background, and how his company has adapted in the era of COVID, and how they're pivoting in 2021. Kyle also points out that he wanted to ensure Dillas was "the community restaurant, not just a restaurant in the community."

Enjoy!

About Dillas Quesadillas

Dillas has been a dream in the making for many many years. It started out as an idea in college that was fun to just think about, but all the stars aligned and made Dillas a reality! The hard work, sweat and tears are all worth it in the end

One night while brainstorming names (Quesadilla King, Dilla Villa, The Fold Over, etc…I think at one point we had 60 names on the table) the movie Napoleon Dynamite, a classic and huge hit at the time, came on. At one point there is a scene where Napoleon is hungry and asks his grandma “what’s there to eat?” She responds, “Knock it off Napoleon, make yourself a dang quesa-DILLA!” As we looked at each other we all knew that we had the name. Dillas (Pronounced Dill-uhs) was the perfect name. Dilla has since become our slang for a quesadilla and we hope Dillas will become the household name for a Primo Quesadilla Restaurant!

I have the very best wife, Katherine, and more kids than you can shake a stick at, okay only 5 (ages 6, 7, 11, 12 + 14), but that’s still a lot.
