The most important aspect of achieving a bold dream is, first, having one.

Born, raised and based in Omaha, Timothy Christian always wanted to be in the entertainment business. He’s now living a life that many of us would consider completely surreal – producing movies on locations around the world with high-powered stars such as Margot Robbie, Chris Pine and Andy Garcia. Timothy sat down for an inspirational Q & A about defining your dreams and being brave enough to pursue them – with bonus insights into what his preferred super power would be + a look at the trailer from his production company’s latest film, “Against the Clock.”
