Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
I grew up in the small village of Bethalto, Illinois, where breaking the mold was discouraged.
Everyone expected me to go to the local college, but I chose to attend Illinois State University.
While in college, I took a job at Taco Bell as a food champion.
That job helped me save up for my dream: to move to L.A. and work in the film industry.
Taco Bell also helped me build up a lot of the confidence that I’d lost somewhere along the way.
After graduating from ISU, I drove out to Los Angeles, fulfilling one half of my dream.
I now work at Deluxe in the post-production stage of the film industry.
I think my path is proof that no dream is too big, and no job is too small.

Day to Day

My work consists mainly of developing online film trailer content for Sony. I don’t physically work on the trailers, but I orchestrate everything: I talk to the client and find out what they want and need from the project, communicate those needs to our tech department so that they can produce the trailer, and then facilitate the delivery of the assets back to the client.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Take as many internships and volunteer opportunities as you can—while still respecting your limits! Don’t just put your head down and focus all your time on school; get out of the classroom and take opportunities that can build up your skills. Become a jack-of-all-trades.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

The work I did at Taco Bell has nothing to do with my current work at all, but I believe that if you put everything into that first job—even if it’s just putting meat into a little taco—your employers and the people around you will see that you’re a hard worker. Work extra hard at every job you get, and people will notice you.
