Maria began her career as an actress performing in numerous network television, film and NYC stage productions. Maria made her directorial debut with an Off-Off Broadway production at the Producers Club in NYC.

KEVIN O'BRYAN was born and raised in the mid-west, and pursued a career as an actor, where he went on to work on various LA-based television shows. After choosing to expand his horizons, Kevin graduated from Ball State University with degrees in Architecture & Environmental Design. Moving to NYC almost two decades ago, Kevin quickly took to the NY stage, applying both his passions of acting and set design. This is where he met Maria and they joined forces creating FFE. Kevin's talents expand beyond the creative realm into the business end of production. Kevin is a Project Executive responsible for real estate and construction projects and staff in the magnitude of $500MM. He leverages these same management tools to ensure that his media projects are developed and delivered within schedule and budget of the highest quality.
