Growing up I was always told, "do what you loved and never settle for anything less." Since hearing these words as a child, I have seen the power of what they mean and they have become the words to live by. I have a burning respect for the way that film and video can affect people, and having the power to pull such emotions through this art has always fascinated me. Life is a challenge. There is no right or wrong way to live by, just do what makes you happy and the rest will be taken care of.
