Teaching at the CTE Regional Symposium

Next week, I'll have the honor of teaching as an industry expert at the 3rd Annual CTE Regional Symposium at LA City College.  This year's theme, "Your Career I Your Talent I Your Choice," was designed to inform students in a way that moves them into career-oriented action in the creative fields.  Super excited to be speaking on a panel again and helping students find ways to work in the creative industry!  I'm very passionate about inspiring people to embrace their passions and build a sustainable and fulfilling career out of them - everyone has something to contribute and we all can benefit from each others' skills and knowledge :)

Another awesome NextUp Program in the books!

I've had an incredible year of teaching, instructing, and consulting.  From mentoring students at LA Mission College to consulting Ad Agencies for Youtube, I'm grateful to share my experiences and knowledge to those who need it.  One of my favorite programs is Youtube's Nextup program in which I was the co-lead TA and mentor.  I was once again able to help Youtube creators with 10k subscribers and up how to use basic filmmaking techniques to improve their channels.  I've taught and mentored at a total of 3 NextUp programs this year and all of them have been filled with amazing creators that I can now call my friends :)

Mentored in Sao Paulo, Brazil for Youtube's Business Building Workshop

I'm so grateful to have mentored and taught in Sao Paulo, Brazil for Youtube and CreatorUp's business building workshop to teach Brazilian creators how to create businesses out of their channels.  To see creators and experts excited to work together to help build their businesses was absolutely heart-warming and inspirational :)

Teacher for LA Mission College ICAPS Program

For 6 weeks, I taught at LA Mission College to a group of students for a course called "Getting a Job in Creative Industries: You, Your Skills, Your Portfolio" which was developed in collaboration between CreatorUp and LACC for I-CAP.  I had the pleasure of sharing my experiences and knowledge about my life as a creative in the creative industry to help them launch their artistic careers - another passion of mine that came to fruition this year!


Taught a 360 Course for Oculus and Digital Promise!

I had the pleasure of teaching an online 360 Video Course for Oculus and Digital Promise's VR FOR GOOD program!  The online course was used to teach instructors how to create 360 videos with ten rising filmmakers who work with ten nonprofits to tell their stories through VR :)  Taught through CreatorUp, the course dived through how to use a 360 camera to how to tell a story through the technology.

I'm A 360/VR Director and Producer, check out my videos!

I've been shooting and editing a lot of 360/VR Content lately with my Ricoh Theta S, from Breakdancing and Wedding Videos, to Behind the Scenes and Travel Videos.  I've also shot on the GoPro Odyssey and will be releasing footage soon.  Want a 360/VR Video or need a director/producer with experience?   Contact me!  I've also been asked to teach an online course on 360/VR Video and am currently consulting companies and individuals on the technology :)
