“For once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will long to return.”

—Leonardo da Vinci

Life No. I: A native of Savannah, Dep practiced law privately, and as Chief Assistant District Attorney in Savannah. He was also cross designated as a federal prosecutor, chaired the Prison Committee of the State Bar and several subcommittees of the Criminal Justice Section of the American Bar Association.

Next, he directed a State Agency under Georgia’s Governor, after when he headed to Washington, D.C., where he designed, built, and ran the first Anti-Piracy Task Force for the satellite television industry, supervising a national network of former FBI agents. Next came a stint doing political and legal advance work for The Edison Project, a revolutionary concept of innovative, cutting-edge, schools.

Dep was a member of the Georgia and D.C. Bar Associations and admitted to practice before various state and federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court. But…. eventually, he came to his senses.

Life No. II: Dep was eventually lured away from the law by his dream of carving a path in the creative arts, and took off for New York City where he studied for several years with the legendary Fred Kareman at Kareman/Handman Studios in Carnegie Hall. Dep has studied extensively in both New York and Los Angeles (Fred Kareman, Chuck Jones, William Alderson, Ivana Chubbuck, Beverly Hills Playhouse, and more), where his work as an actor, writer, and director has been seen on stage, screen, and television. Most recently, he appeared in the Off-Broadway production of his own play, MsTRIAL, at New World Stages in New York City. MsTRIAL is now in pre-production as a feature film.

As Chairman of Isle of Hope Entertainment, Dep acts, writes, directs, and produces for all entertainment mediums.
