A: Growing up I looked up to my Uncle who was a producer for CBS News, so I decided to take a broadcast class in high school. I enjoyed it so in college I decided to study media production. After graduating, I worked at a studio in Wake Forest. After that, I worked for various companies staying in the video realm.

Q: You can offer a client one piece of advice when planning a video project. What would it be and how has it proven effective in your past experiences?
