The Ensemble Crew

Danny Pugh

Actor, Writer, Producer

After building his first website at 11 years old and creating his own business at the age of 22, Danny is a certified creative savant and business expert. Having worked for Apple, Sony, and Samsung, he has collaborated directly with corporate executives to build new brands, shift company cultures, and win prestigious awards. He has recently returned to the stage leveraging his BFA in Film Production and Minor in Psychology to bring diverse characters to life as an actor and producer. He is currently writing a 6-episode web series exploring friendship, spirituality, and business in a silly yet mystical sitcom called "New Age."

Melanie Alexander

Actor, Writer, Director

Melanie has a BFA in Theater Performance from Chapman University where she took her first and only screenwriting class from Jessica Scott, a fearless female in the industry who inspired Melanie to consider screenwriting in addition to acting. Cut to: several years later and Melanie has added a writing addiction to her collection of other artistic endeavors. She most recently put up a production of "The Realistic Joneses" by Will Eno in a backyard in Pasadena, playing a neurotic and delusional woman whose husband is dying of a terminal illness. In a departure from that tragic comedy, Melanie wrote "Full Moon," a dramatic horror, working with a talented repetoire of actors she’s worked with many times in the past.

Mary Stark

Editor, Director

Mary has a BFA in Directing from The Academy of Art in San Francisco. She currently works in Los Angeles as an editor of movie trailers, a lot like Cameron Diaz in The Holiday but without that huge house. She most recently directed "Full Moon."

Nicole Zakheim


Nicole is a graduate of Chapman University's Dodge College of Film & Media Arts. She has since worked for production companies including Gersh Agency, Good Universe, and Lionsgate. Her previous works include the films, “Mom,” “Deep Dish,” and most recently, the web series “First Lady Problems." Nicole is directing Thoughts to Things' newest web series "New Age."
