I always wanted to be a photographer. I just couldn't get the breaks that I needed to become one. However, the next best thing (for me) was acquiring an interview for a gofer in a film editing company in NYC. I hated days one and two but hung in and after years of on the job training, I was able to connect with someone who paved the way to becoming a part owner leading to a very successful 30 year career. Now retired, finally I take pictures and love it.
