How To (not) Live Your Dreams | 008
I'm not an expert in anything. But if there's one thing I know, it's how to do nothing.  So today, I'm going to teach you how to NOT live your dreams. . . . Storyteller. Wedding Filmmaker. Content Creators for the Illinois Assemblies of God. As a child I had a passion for storytelling, but the methods of doing this changed as I grew up. In elementary school, it was puppetry and comics. When I got into high school and college, I found a home in filmmaking. Based in Illinois, I make a living producing social media content for The Illinois District of the Assemblies of God. When I’m not telling stories for them, I create beautiful wedding films and work on passion projects such as a book about my brother and my weekly show (check it out on Apple Podcasts/Youtube). Talk to me and let’s see what we can create together. . . .
