Lisa - Team Member.jpg

Lisa Lam

Director of Finance

Lisa (she/her/hers) is a Cantonese-American actor and writer. She is really excited to be a part of RCtM, because growing up in America, she didn't see many people who looked like her on TV and film. She believes strongly in RCtM's mission, and wants members of all marginalized communities to feel seen and heard, and to know that our stories also deserve to be shared.


Digs Brown

Director of Content

Digs is trans writer, podcaster, and special effects artist with a passion for horror and the surreal.  He has a background in media analysis and rhetoric and accidentally earned a citation in astrophysics during undergrad.  Digs runs a podcast network called WTRN: The Radio Network and is the co-host of Genre Blind.  He is excited about bringing the unconventional into the limelight, both in front of and behind the camera.

We wouldn't be able to do this without our wickedly talented actors.
