“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

In a former life, Dep practiced law, in a variety of capacities, from Savannah, to Atlanta, Washington (DC), New York, and Los Angeles, and was admitted to practice before various state and federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court.

Eventually……. he came to his senses.

Law School was his mother’s idea. She should have gone, instead. She’d have made a good one.

Dep finally left the law and took off for New York City to pursue his lifelong dream of working in the creative arts, studying extensively with the legendary Fred Kareman (RIP) at Fred’s Carnegie Hall studios, and subsequently on both coasts with a variety of renowned professional instructors in technique, scene study, and vocal production.

Dep’s work as an actor, writer, and director has been seen on both coasts, on stage, screen, and in 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 currently in pre-production as a feature film, among a host of film and television projects.

Dep is the Chairman of Isle of Hope Entertainment and acts, writes, and directs for stage, film, and television.

He is typically found in Los Angeles, New York, Austin, Atlanta, Nashville, or wherever work takes him.
