The Coffee Shop Northeast and all its lovely employees and customers.
The Coffee Shop Northeast is my office away from home. Its where I go to see people I know and love, write things down, check emails and facebook for hours and get a good bite to eat in the process. Its like home, in the best sense of the word, and its people are sometimes more than family. The community surrounding this place is very nurturing and strong, and has always been motivating and supportive of my artistic endeavors. Many times people have bent over backwards and let me shoot in their homes or put their children in horrendous zombie makeup, all for the sake of my cinematic dreams. I would not have been as successful as I've been in MPLS had I not worked here, spent years getting to know these amazing people, and taken the wonderful opportunities presented in its doors. I couldn't leave town without giving back to the rich community that has helped me grow so much. I carry The Coffee Shop Northeast in my heart where ever I go.
