From an early age, Angelo was captivated by film. He started making his own films from the moment he was given a camera. He worked as if he were a professional and never stopped holding himself to that standard. Angelo's life took a turn for the worse in high school as he developed a full-blown eating disorder and lost over half his body weight. He was severely depressed and lost interest in every aspect of life. It wasn't until Angelo's sophomore year of college that he decided to seek help. He spent four weeks in a partial-hospitalization program for eating disorders, which proved to be a transformative experience. When Angelo returned to school, he immediately started to work on a short film that documented his recovery through the eyes of those closest to him. He discovered a passion for activism and continued to explore the intersection of art and activism and what that meant for him. The following summer, Angelo wrote a screenplay about a teenage popstar's secret battle with anorexia. That screenplay became a book, and before long, that book became his first feature film, The Incredible Jake Parker.
