Day to Day

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.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

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!

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Discover your passion and be willing to put it all on the line. Push through all the noise and listen to that inner voice that has been guiding you all along. Even if you make mistakes, you are at least living your version of life, rather than somebody else's. They did a survey with elderly people who were close to death and they said their #1 regret was not going after their dreams when they were younger. Time is the most valuable asset you have. Go for it now! Live in the moment.
