My last semester at Texas Tech, I wrote and directed a movie titled ‘Demon Sorority Lumberjacks’. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but we finished almost 45 minutes over the span of 5 months and didn’t completely lose our minds. Even after that minor explosion in my face, I’ve been itching to get back on set and learn how to do it right. Fast forward through a minor identity crisis and I found the magical first job. With my foot in the door, I’ve accelerated into the production assistant role like a true go-getter.
