The Director's Brunch is designed to give Houston artist the opportunity to sit down and ask questions and engage with Hollywood Celebrity Acting coaches, Producers, Directors and Casting Directors. For too long it has been almost impossible to sit down and have an open and honest conversation with some of Hollywoods top Coaches, directors and producers. The two-hour Q&A is free but we encourage all participants to patronize the establishment. The Director's Brunch will be held once a month with additional dates to be announced in the coming weeks. Space is limited so act fast before they are all filled. Troy Michael Rowland is one of Hollywood’s premiere Life and acting coaches. Troy began his acting career studying under John E.
