An aspiring filmmaker, I believe the richer our experiences in life are, the more we're able to draw from them into this magnificent form of art we aspire to produce. I recognize that I have a long way to go, and I'm willing to walk it through with the utmost amount of dedication to both getting the job done and picking up a few skills along the way.
With an undergraduate degree in Broadcasting Journalism and a master in Producing Film and TV from two of the world's leading academic institutions, I can confidently say I've acquired a solid knowledge on the creative angles of the industry, and I'm hoping I'd be given the chance to demonstrate that on the real ground
