I've been filming and being inspired by CreativeMornings NYC talks since March 2012. I love working on short-form video projects highlighting people and businesses. I own a video production company that is based around the principle of "work hard and be nice to people."
Visual storytelling, playing musical instruments, making people smile.
"Find a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." - My Dad (coincidentally, the best advice he's ever received!)
Being optimistic - even in the most adverse situations.

Mentoring to me just wasn't about this one-on-one, it was about this community. It was about the community like CreativeMornings. You show up to enough of these things, then you start networking, you meet people, maybe you get jobs, maybe you like hook up or whatever. Things happen when you're in a community.
That itching feeling of when you know that you should be doing something more with your life, you should be doing it. You're doing yourself, and the universe, and your community, and your family a disservice if you play small.
