First day on the job at Paramount

Alright, settle in, let me take you on a journey back in time, about 21 years ago to be precise. Picture this: it’s January 12th, and I’m sitting behind the wheel, anxiously approaching the Paramount Pictures gate. My heart is racing, my hands are trembling, but deep down, there’s this undeniable conviction within me that I’m meant for this moment.

But before we dive into the Paramount Pictures gate saga, let’s rewind a bit. You see, I hail from Southern California, where the air is always tinged with a hint of cinematic magic. Growing up, I was surrounded by the glitz and glamour of filmmaking and the arts, but I never dreamt of being the next big thing on the screen. No, my fascination lay in the intricate dance behind the scenes, the alchemy of turning dreams into reality on the silver screen. Little did I know back then that one could carve out a livelihood, and more importantly, find sheer joy in the hustle and bustle of Hollywood.

Now, back to that fateful day at Paramount Pictures. As I inch closer to the gate, my mind races with a whirlwind of emotions. Doubt tries to creep in, but I push it aside, clinging onto that flicker of belief burning brightly within me. And then, it happens – an opportunity knocks, beckoning me to step into the world of lights, camera, action.

Fast forward to the present day, and here I am, recounting my journey of “making it” alongside my dear friend and esteemed film director, Ryan Little. We delve deep into the highs and lows, the triumphs and tribulations, on his captivating podcast, Filmmaking Friends.

So, there you have it – a glimpse into my behind-the-scenes odyssey, from nervous anticipation at the Paramount Pictures gate to sharing my tale of perseverance and passion with the world. I share my “making it” story with my good friend and film director, Ryan Little, on his podcast, Filmmaking Friends.
