ABOUT THE TEACHER
Hey there! I'm a filmmaker and writer from California. I've lived all over California, and also in Beijing, China. I love making films, surfing, and traveling. I've worked in Hollywood for many years as an independent filmmaker, both directing and producing feature length motion pictures. I also own my own production company that did creative branding, marketing, and video production for different corporate clients. Prior to that, I was directing music videos and working with quite a few famous Rap artists. I recently made a documentary about the future of information technology and had the pleasure of interviewing New York Times #1 best selling author Tim Ferris, as well as futurist Peter Schwartz. I also made a documentary about the leader of a Cambodian Gang in America. I have great stories to tell and I hope to integrate that with my teaching style to my students.
