I spent many years unhappy with what I was doing in life. I scrawled, "I want to be more creative" in my notebook over and over again, not knowing where to begin or where to turn. After reading multiple self-help and career books I realized my interest in film and television. It then took another several years to slowly build up my experience in the film industry, which I did while working 9-5. So believe me, I get it. I know what it's like to have that feeling in your gut, to know you don't belong in your current life and the relentless hunger for creative ambition, without being able to articulate it aloud. I know the fear and lows that comes with all of that too. I want you to avoid repeating my mistakes.
Here's my story. I worked for 10 years in the federal public service, in communications and HR, specifically around the people side: talent management, career development and workplace well-being. I have also worked in film and television production: the feature thriller Penthouse North (starring Michael Keaton and Michelle Monaghan), Radio Canada's Toi et moi: malgré tout and in the broadcasting sector, in Acquisitions at the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network. I made my first film, The City That Fun Forgot?, without any prior experience and it had a sold-out premiere in 2014, garnering local and national media coverage. Since then, my other works have been shortlisted for the TVO Short Doc Contest and screened for TVO, the American Documentary Film Festival, Brooklyn Web Fest and more.
