When I attended the University of Delaware from 2003-2007, I was very heavily involved with a TV Station, called STN (Student Television Network). This small, but growing station served as my motivation and inspiration for my back then passion in life – TV Production. Together, we’ve created various shows and commercials. I was also able to take some classes, teaching me Documentary movie making, the news and others. I even served as the Station President in my final year of college, helping me build a strong resume, which I thought would be enough for an entry level position in the industry.
Unfortunately, my phone and email were quiet for a few long, nerve-wracking months, until I got a gig to teach English in Korea. Sure, it wasn’t my specialty, but my second passion in life was to lead the life of a wanderlust. I knew that even if I got a job somewhere, the likes of me hosting a travel show like Anthony Bourdain, Samantha Brown or Andrew Zimmern would be slim, especially in the first 10 to 15 years (gotta put in the time, right?!). So I put my TV production experience on hold and started teaching abroad. A few years ago I discovered my passion for travel and portrait photography, which was great and allowed me to capture those travel moments without having to sit around for hours in Post Production.
