T.O.P. Podcast

 I am a crew member who worked for both professional and independent film in Vancouver Canada. After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis I am now physically unable to work on set. I created this podcast to talk to inspiring and interesting people from all departments working in both film industries. On occasion I will also interview diagnosed people and different health care professionals who devote all their focus on Multiple Sclerosis.
