After my first documentary course with professor Allen White, I just fell in love with filmmaking. He encouraged me to go further and that’s where my life took a turn. My internship with Epic Church San Francisco as their video storyteller opened many doors for me and I was offered to stay on as their part-time video storyteller while starting my own business. I love being in Silicon Valley where all this digital technology is born. Enrolling in the Digital Arts program was a good challenge and best fit for me.
