Back to School

This afternoon I will be at my alma mater, Monmouth University.  The Department of Communication is holding it's annual career day and networking event.  I will be there to offer professional guidance to students who are looking for internships or who soon be entering the "real" world.  I am also speaking on a panel with other professionals who work in "TV".  

Operating a Panasonic DVC-80 durring my college days.  

I've been a freelancer since the day I graduated.  I can't imagine any other lifestyle.  Sure, it can be tough and competitive, but that's why you have to have a passion for what you do.  Sometimes it feels like I shoot everything under the sun, TV, films, documentaries, corporate videos, commercials…  That is why I enjoy being a freelancer.  There is so much variety in the type of work I do, and I'm never in the same place for too long.  No matter what the production is, to me, it's a new challenge and a new way to use a camera to tell  story.  

I'm looking forward to being back and hopefully mentoring some passionate students.
