A long-time aficionado of stories that inspire and inform, Kerry expanded her business acumen in 2017, serving as Executive Producer on the award-winning short film, “Emma Rae." This project was written and directed by her longtime friend and Military Intelligence colleague, Los Angeles-based filmmaker, Allen L. Sowelle.
Due of the critical success of their collaboration, Kerry formed 05Hogs Productions LLC, where she oversees the acquisition of fiction and non-fiction projects with the profound desire to develop earnest, and engaging narratives that speak to the Warrior spirit in All of Us.
Kerry spent the 16 years after she left her position as a U.S. Army’s Military Intelligence analyst in Cold War Europe, climbing the Corporate ladder; first in the computer industry as both Purchasing Manager and Sales Manager, and then as Global Project Manager and Six Sigma Black Belt at American Express.
With this vast knowledge and experience, she then opened her first business, developing into 16 years of professional Tax Preparation and Bookkeeping. Her financial insights and power are the nucleus of the 05Hogs operations.
Her most important accomplishments have been raising her three sons and daughter, and now being an active grandmother.
Allen is a multi-award winning, writer-director, who in early 2019 sold a screenplay he co-wrote based on New York Times Best-Selling author, Eric Jerome Dickey’s book, One Night. The project is slated for production Summer 2019.
Allen’s work ranges from producing and editing reality TV, serving as Creative Director for a branding agency, Head of Production for a broadband advocacy corporation producing purpose-driven media, and two award-winning scripted series, “9INE,” addressing teen pregnancy from the POV of a teen-father-to-be, and “Front Seat Chronicles,” about the life-changing conversations that occur when we’re in transition. He also wrote and directed an award-winning short, Emma Rae, addressing abuse in the foster care system.
His writing career began with a script based on his experiences as a Gang Interventionist, and a Domestic Violence counselor in Santa Cruz County Jail.
An alumnus of the Guy Hanks and Marvin Miller Screenwriting Fellowship at USC, Allen’s credits also include documentaries and a theatrical release where he was hired by WWE Films to do rewrites on the Lionsgate release, See No Evil.
A Military Intelligence Veteran, Allen earned his Bachelor’s Degree in World Literature at UC Santa Cruz, as well as completed work on his Master’s Degree in Teledramatic Arts & Technology at Cal State Monterey Bay.
When Allen isn’t writing or parenting he spends many fall Saturdays with his head in his hands longing for the glory days of his favorite college football team.
