My road in life took a while to figure out.
Wanted to work in the film industry, but everyone told me that's insane.
Studied PR, history, poli sci, english, journalism, then finally threw in some cinema studies.
Became a reporter.
Loved it at first, moved my way up pretty quickly.
Got what I thought was my "dream job" and hated it.
I quit. Mozied around unemployment for over a year and finally found myself at a place that I like.
I work at a place that both utilizes my skill set while allowing me to try my hand at filmmaking.

Being Creative

Day to Day

I meet with my writers, hopefully, they are in a good and malleable mood. We go over how to make their fancy academic-speak into something more digestible for a general audience. Afterward, I meet with the documentary team and we discuss what needs to be done to turn those bite-sized academic blog posts into an interesting mini-documentary (30 sec- 4 minutes). Then I write the narration script. When that's done I lay out the post into a beautiful design to post online.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Listen to your instincts. Don't waste your time and money on the degree that will make you the most money. Most people don't work in their original field of study. I think that's the case because most people are worried about money and image, but if it's not really the kind of work you want to do, you'll just end up changing down the line anyway.
