"Acting & Film making has been my dream since I was a kid. It's been the driving force behind my passion and has given me an adventurous free spirit lifestyle with travel, new experiences and a surreal career being in tv & movies. Everyone deserves a chance to pursue their dreams and it's my mission to try and lead by example.
I've been honored and privileged to work with youth in First Nations communities for the past decade. They have inspired me with their ambitions, talents and innate understanding of storytelling. They have all the talent they need, they now need the hands on experience and training to help guide them in the next steps for the Arts."
Nicole Bartel - Producer / Videographer
"I've been volunteering & working with First Nation communities since I was a teen. I love all the laughter, the warm welcomes and their vibrant yet grounded culture. . First Nations people have had a great impact on my life and I always look forward to seeing them again.
Being asked to join the Road to Freedom team was an instant yes! Having the chance to introduce Videography and Photography to the youth has been a very uplifting and exciting adventure. The youth are so talented and eager to learn it has driven my passion to help others.
Jesse Nobess - Comedian / Actor / Youtuber
"I've always had a passion for Acting and creating content. It's helped me to find confidence and express myself through a fun healthy outlet like story telling.
Working with the Road to Freedom program has been an unexpected journey in my life. Years ago Kyle approached me to join him on a few workshops in First Nation communities and I haven't looked back ever since. It has turned into a life passion of mine. The youth are so funny and awesome. They deserve this type of film training and introduction to Acting for camera. There is lot's of opportunities for First Nations youth in this industry and it's up to us to share it with them."
