Nelson knew he had a passion for acting when he auditioned for the Wizard of Oz in his 3rd grade drama club. He may not have gotten the star role, but his part as a munchkin taught him an important lesson early on. He learned the importance of networking.

Mr. Davis leaned on his calling as he began to write, direct, and edit his own short films. He would sell them on DVD to promote his work. His movies caught the eye of another filmmaker and the rest is history. Nelson’s hard work was paying off as his efforts were becoming more widely recognized.

Nelson’s break came after calling Producer/Director Alize Elyse and asking to join her cast. Elyse promised to keep him in mind and gave him a call when the opportunity arose to have him play a Detective in her crime thriller, 24 Hours.
