My road in life has taken me all over.
First I had a great support system at home. My mom and I would constantly try to figure it all out.
Then I started learning as much about technical audio as I could on my own.
Then I got to the point where I had decide if I wanted to take the next step or just stop.
Then I moved to Hollywood, baby! I stopped taking conventional college courses.
Then I freaked out... but used the uncertainty as my motivation to learn as much as possible.
Then I made friends doing the EXACT same thing as me.. I wasn't so crazy after all!
Then I started meeting more people who wanted to help me reach my goals.
Then I found work and started focusing on this whole thing as a career and not a hobby.
Keep following my journey

Accomplishing Goals

Day to Day

Throughout the day I talk to video editors, producers and directors to see exactly what we need to accomplish and also try to prepare for upcoming projects. Depending on the project, I'm either pulling sound effects, recording voice overs or assisting in the overall audio mix. When everyone is working together, the stresses of meeting deadlines goes away and a day at work starts to seem more like a day with friends... thats what a great day looks like.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

The first step though would be to intern. Do it as soon as possible and start meeting people who can point you in the right direction. You will figure out that even in big cities, everyone knows each other and some of those people might want to help you out.

From Society in General:

"I hear that audio is really competitive. Maybe you should try to find a safer alternative."
