Writer - Director - Producer - Speaker - ADHD Coach ...

Beer Aficionado???

Stephen Tonti is a freelance writer, director, and ADHD advocate based in Los Angeles, CA.

Born in New Orleans and raised in Dallas, TX, Stephen holds a B.F.A. in Directing from Carnegie Mellon University and is currently enrolled in USC's Graduate Film and Television Production program. 

Having worked in various industries spanning film, theatre, music, tech, online publication, new media, and even ADHD coaching... Stephen clearly cares A LOT about... a lot. To name just a few companies Stephen has either worked for or co-founded himself: HEARST Media Group, The Roundabout Theatre Company, The Wild Honey Pie, Manhattan Theatre Club, The Lincoln Center, Dallas Theatre Center, LAUNCH Presents: TBD Fest, Hooke Audio, Potential Within Reach, Attention Different, and New Krewe Productions. Additionally, Stephen has worked alongside a menagerie of magnificent mentors: assistant producer for Jacob Jaffke, speech writer for Paula Wagner, assistant director to Katherine Brook and artistic director Kevin Moriarty, media consultant for Sydney Beers and Scott Ellis... the list goes on. 

Stephen has had his work presented on Style of Sound, Brooklyn Vegan, Billboard, Shot For Shot film festival, The Roundabout Theatre Company's Spring Gala, Playground: A Festival of New Work, and The Wild Honey Pie. 

Stephen is the Co-Founder of Vin Fiz Productions, New Krewe Productions, and the ADHD coaching & advocacy company Attention Different. 

Stephen started Attention Different with Aaron Smith in 2014 after the success of his 2013 TEDx Talk at Carnegie Mellon titled "Attention Different, NOT 'Deficit.'" The 2013 talk is on YouTube and has since gathered well over one million views. 

Stephen currently travels the country (when he can squeeze it in) to present on growing up ADHD.

 

 

Oh ... Stephen also really loves beer.
