I used to work in a cubicle, building models of airplanes and jet engines in Excel. I got paid very well, I had benefits, and I worked in a very low-stress environment, but I was not passionate about my job. I was working 60+ hr weeks, getting home at midnight only to turn on my computer and spend hours editing "Boston Layer-Lapse". I spent almost 90% of my free time learning time lapse and after effects because that's what I enjoyed doing, I didn't consider it work. After a couple years I quit my job because I didn't want to spend more of my life pursing a job I knew I was not passionate about. Now I can wake up every morning knowing I am building a career doing what I love.

Whenever I see an epic sunset I am reminded of how beautiful this planet is, I get motivated to capture that feeling in my work and images
I was an engineer and rocket scientist before becoming a filmmaker, I love thinking about the big bang and quantum physics
Filmmakers have the ability to connect with almost the entire planet, that is a powerful opportunity to influence global consciousness
