Ashton Montague Segree brings an extensive background in entertainment, which affords him a unique perspective that he brings to his writing, acting and producing. From an early age, Ashton has been involved in the arts, growing up with a father who worked at Pittsburgh Public Theater with artists like August Wilson, and a mother who was in radio and news broadcasting working with organizations like WQED with Fred Rogers.
These experiences nurtured his love for performance and eventually manifested into Ashton performing with artists on tour and producing music where he found early success. Ashton attended Duquesne University and earned a double major in Corporate Communications and Philosophy. He juggled a full-time class schedule while interning and founding a talent-booking agency working with many national acts and traveling the country. Out of such experience came professional growth, which leads Ashton to move to Los Angeles where he could further grow in the entertainment industry.
There he was accepted into Creative Artists Agency’s (CAA) music department the Summer of 2012 and spent a year in the agency world learning the mechanics of Hollywood. After CAA, Ashton reopened his booking agency from college, calling it; Enabler Talent Associates (ETA) booking many national acts and representing a large roster of clients. ETA remained open for 3 years before he slowly made his transition into acting, writing, and producing. Ashton began his writing and acting career during Summer 2016 attending acting classes with various teachers in Los Angeles. He would go onto audition, work, and act on sets from modeling jobs to feature films. After 8 years in Los Angeles, Ashton moved back to Pennsylvania with the mission; to establish a film community in Philadelphia, write, act, and produce.
A believer in having control over his own career and destiny he promotes entrepreneurial endeavors and living the “auditionless” life, by building a community of filmmakers and having the knowledge to produce and film your own scripts. His passion for performing arts, independent film, entrepreneurship, and creating content were the ingredients that sparked the idea for Soundsight his production company.
