In the next five years, I see Dera Lee Productions blossoming into an agency that that takes on more theatrical live experiences.

Why was it important for you to start Dera Lee Productions?

It was important for me to start Dera Lee Productions because I always wanted to produce theater and then I realized live event experiences IS my "theater".  After I graduated NYU Tisch School of the Arts with a degree in drama, I performed on many stages across the country but most importantly I learned that the cast in every show was working towards the goal of telling an engaging and memorable story. I wanted to recreate that and build a production and design team that really shared the same core values and believed in why we do what we do every day.
