Filmmaker, Photographer, Interviewer.
Wake up at 6 a.m. Edit my videos and photography. Exercise. Meditate. Eat healthy. Do online marketing. Catch up on social media. Spend time with loved ones.
Most of my experience came from actually putting myself out there in the field. Network with local filmmakers and photographers. Also, there is a LOT of amazing tutorials online that can teach you everything you need to know about filming, editing, interviewing, photography, etc. The world is in your hands!
