Milestones

My road in life has taken me all over.
I originally went to college but I decided to drop out after three years.
Instead, I pursued certifications in skills I wanted to learn.
I'm a certified trainer in both Apple and Adobe tools; now I can help others learn these tools.
I've always been open to things and open to bold career moves.
For example, my most recent position has been working in sports: I'm not even a sports fan!

Day to Day

On a good day at work, I go home without a voice. I've talked circles around everybody and people have retained at least a good chunk of what I've said. That's a good day.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Communication is huge, and it's not always something they teach in school. A book can't teach you how to relate to people; you can only get people skills by interacting with other people.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

The best thing I ever did was buy my own camera and just start shooting. Then I bought my own computer and learned how to edit. If you have all the tools, you can go ahead and make the mistakes while you're learning. The more you make those mistakes, the more you'll be able to anticipate what people need, and what kind of problems you're going to run into next time. Above all, put yourself out there humbly. Don't try to chime in on everything; sit back and let people teach you something.
