And before this, I got really lucky.
I was hired as a roadie by PBS series “Roadtrip Nation”, and I started off by
traveling all over the United States. 7000 miles, 6 weeks and 3 days of promoting.
During this 7000 mile loop I did over 25
speaking events at college campuses,
drove a 38 foot RV, and conducted
documentary style interviews
for Roadtrip Nation.
After I came back from this trip, Roadtrip Nation hired me full time to run the
educational grant program. In short, I empowered and taught college students to film
documentary shorts to be produced as web content and short television pieces.
Other jobs held at Roadtrip Nation included:
I was a Casting
Coordinator for the PBS

Nation educational material. I Was
educational videos and books.
I was a part of the team
that handled the marketing
and outreach campaigns.

Last year at UCLA, I had the opportunity to participate in the second quarter of the “Imagineering” class. I lead my
team on concept development for a immersive design project titled “Nexus 24”. I don’t think I’ve ever worked
