Storytelling has been a driving factor in my life since I was quite young. Books, movies, television , stand-up comedy, poetry, discussion with friends. When I finally made the decision to follow this interest as a career, I began to take immediate action. I worked very hard to figure out who I was and what I wanted. By focusing on me and the world I exist in, I came to the conclusion, that I had the opportunity through my storytelling , to not only have a positive effect on myself, but to have a positive effect on my world. I was able to figure out what tools and support I would need. I work hard every day to learn the technical knowledge and to make the connections that will make me a better storyteller, leader, artist, person, a better part of my world.
