When we are younger we are asked what we want to be when we grow up. The answers are based on what brings us happiness. Some answer it with lavish ideas of being astronauts and some more simple with being teachers. For me, it was to be a doctor, because they had the ability to heal. I realize that television production has that same ability and can do what medicine can’t, which is to connect with a variety of audiences through different emotions. Shows can make people laugh, smile, cry, and learn to move on, all at the same time.
I want to pursue TV-Directing because I feel like the core of all the powers that film brings comes from this. Audiences that watch television shows come back each week awaiting your next update to the series and how it continues. They watch it in their pajamas, in their living room, in their living room, or even dining room. It doesn’t get much more intimate than that. You’re able to connect with them in a way that movies can’t. That’s the beauty of television, it can be watched anywhere at any time.
I want to be able to direct the next world-changing drama series that connects to an untapped audience of underdogs of misrepresented people. I want those that have their stories heard to have an outlet to get their stories heard. I want to create the future of television that depends on user created content and allow others to be a part of the story. Let’s face it; you pay more attention to the story when you’re a part of it. These are all my future dreams for television. With the support of the academy and this future internship, I hope to pursue all these in the future. I want to make a difference in television with my passion and dedication.
I posses all the qualities of hard-worker but what I have more than anyone else is creativity. I think with my diverse skill set, I can provide to television what no one has ever done before and that includes cultural inclusiveness.
I have been in the industry since 2008.
