"Dream big. Work hard. And don't ever give up." I told this to my 5th grade students every year. After eight years in the classroom, I decided to take my own advice and follow my dreams. I enrolled in Mount Hood Community College's Integrated Media program where I could nurture my passion for filmmaking. I write, produce, and direct, hunting for compelling stories to inspire, empower, and motivate my audience. I'm living the dream in beautiful Portland, Oregon where the coffee and creativity flow. What's your story?
