Q&A

What are the driving passions that set you on your path?
The biggest one is my passion for sports. I love how competitive the players are, the stories behind the teams, athletes, and coaches. And I love telling their stories. I guess you would say I also have a passion for performing. When the camera lights turn on, it's an exciting feeling.

Tell us about the one thing or person who changed your life and POV?
Right now, it's into the Derek Jeter documentary series. I loved all his quotes, especially the one where he says, "I’m a real told-you-so guy. I love proving doubters wrong."

Don’t take 'no' for an answer, figure out another way to get it done.
