I changed my major halfway through getting my undergrad degree when I had an epiphany that now seems obvious: to try as hard as I can to make a career for myself that has me doing work that I actually enjoy and want to be doing. I used to work like a robot in a dingy warehouse, but as a filmmaker I can be anywhere and everywhere. And always pursuing happiness. And always in the light. I'm finding it hard to make money at it, but I'm still hopeful that it will change. And happy to be out of the warehouse.

I can turn the lights off, lay back and let music transport me.
...but I work in a visual medium so it often brings me images and ideas.
I've been to 13 countries. I got my degree abroad. Because experiencing new people and customs makes me feel alive more than anything.
I came to filmmaking from a love of computers and how they've expanded my creative palette and decreased the cost of creating.
