Dotan Negrin, a 26-year-old New Yorker, has always had a passion for music. However, after graduating with a degree in acting and theatre, he became the typical ‘struggling actor in NYC.’ To pay the bills, Dotan tried a bit of everything: real estate, day trading, selling used items on eBay.
There are so many actors in NYC who spend more time working side jobs and waiting on line for auditions than actually practicing their craft. I wanted to remedy that by being 100% reliant on my art. One day, while working as an assistant/truck driver for a photographer making $12/hour, I became frustrated because I was working towards this man’s dream instead of my own. Eventually, I decided to quit auditioning and start creating my own opportunity.
