It seems like you have had an incredible amount of motivation to get to where you're at in life right now. Someday's I barely have enough motivation to get out of bed. What keeps you motivated?

i just try to stay creative… plus i have all these ideas in my head that i think would be cool and i try to make them happen.

"invictus"… actually have it tattooed on my arm.

also, i always loved the sonnet… “how do i love thee… let me count the ways…”

"Work In Progress" is a half hour dark comedy revolving around a group of thirty-something friends who went to performing arts high school together in Orange County, CA.

Upon the tragic death of their beloved classmate Daniel Shaw, eight estranged friends are reunited at his memorial. As they begin to rediscover each other, we learn who these friends were in high school, who they actually became, and all the trials and tribulations bringing them to who they are today.

Featuring Natalie Amenula, Arianna Basco, Dante Basco, Dion Basco, Lily Holleman, & Nicole Turley

Produced and written by my sister Arianna “Lady Basco”… Love you.
