ACTING

Emmett was bitten by the acting bug in his younger, pre-transition years, but settled into more behind-the-scenes work for the most part. Since transition and since the launch of BROTHERS, he has a newfound love and appreciation for being in front of the camera and being visible as his authentic self.
