My road in life took a while to figure out.
I served in the Army for eight years.
I was injured, had to have a few surgeries, and I was discharged from the military.
I was accepted to The Daily Show's Veteran Immersion Program.
That was a huge turning point for me—without that program, I wouldn't be where I am today.
Through that program, I met my future boss; he hired me to do freelance work for Comedy Central.
I switched schools to get into a program that could give me some real hands-on experience.
Right now, I'm focusing on completing my degree, but keeping up some production work on the side.

Day to Day

They'd see me on my hustle! Most days I'm on campus, at class or at my fraternity, Omega Delta Sigma, networking with fellow veterans and planning events or community service opportunities. On days when I'm doing production work, it's all over the place. As a production assistant, I'm the first one there and the last one to leave, and there's a lot of busy work. But if my job for the day is to make sure no one crosses a certain line, I stand there and guard that line to the best of my ability.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

Consume as much media as possible, and consume a wide breadth of media. Try not to be subjective; if you don't try everything you can, how will you know what you actually like and dislike, and what you'll want to emulate? You have to really know your art before you can start to create it.
