Picture of Terence

As a graduate of the Pacific Conservatory for the Performing Arts, Terence began his career as an actor performing in multiple award winning classical theatre productions (LA Drama Critics Circle Award – A Noise Within), studio feature films (10 Things I Hate About You, Molly), network television shows (Spin City, Diagnosis Murder), and over sixty national commercials.  While directing TV, film, and commercial castings, Terence discovered his true passion was behind the camera. He returned to school to study cinematography and screenwriting at UCLA.  Since then, Terence has directed projects for Shadowplay Studio and Drama ¾ including Samʼs Stash for the USA Networks television show Burn Notice.  He has also been the Director of Photography on feature film title sequences (Postgrad - Ivan Reitman, The Ward – John Carpenter). Terence’s award winning short film, Russel Fish:  The Sausage and Eggs Incident, starring Golden Globe Award Winner, Chris Colfer, screened at multiple festivals including the Seattle International Film Festival, Austin Film Festival, and Palm Springs International Shortfest. His follow up short film, MADDOGGIN’, has screened at dozens of international festivals and won numerous awards. As a screenwriter, his scripts have placed highly at the Nicholl Fellowship, Austin Film Festival, and Slamdance. Terence and his wife welcomed their first child, a baby boy, into the world on August 6, 2012.
