Name one thing you’ve learned the hard way.
Speak up. Speak up. Speak up. Whether it’s to ask for help, to assert yourself and your ideas, or to admit you’ve made a mistake – if you don’t take control of your own voice, someone else will.

Taking a front row seat with my sister at a Trapdoor Storytelling Slam – I always leave inspired.
What makes you great at your job?
A constant drive to be even better at it.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I want to be proud of what I’ve done, conscious of my own worth and fearless in the face of change. And an extra in the 23rd Star Wars movie.
What is your favorite quote?
“She manufactured the substance of her own dreams, and from those materials constructed a world for me.” – Eva Luna by Isabel Allende
But seriously, the clapping?
Ah, the clapping. It’s a “handy” hack when recording visuals and sound into separate devices. When I start recording, I have the subject face each camera and clap once, as loud as they can with straight hands. This allows me to align audio and video in post-production. It functions just like the clapperboard you see on larger productions, but it’s much funnier to watch!
