When did you realize your interest in films:
While in graduate school studying Public Policy I decided I wanted to direct my first short film on super 8mm and after that I was bit by the film bug. I didn’t want to go through life saying, I really wanted to be a director but I never tried. So after I finished grad school I headed straight to Hollywood.
Why work in this industry:
I love what I do!! I know that’s more than a lot of people can say about their jobs. I love collaborating with people and I can’t imagine doing anything else.

Take on opportunities that come your way. Absorb and learn from those around you, stay humble, and keep at it.
