Like so many young professionals today, I did not enter a singular job and that was it. I have lived with the philosophy that you must love what you do and go where that leads you.
I began as a professional actor. I did stage plays, tv commercials and touring shows. It was a challenging existence of auditions, rejections and amazing experiences in front of live audiences. I spent several years in a feast and famine existence.
I also had a passion for taking pictures and making movies. That began with my first Kodak camera at 10 years of age. I volunteered in high school with a local tv station, hanging around so long that they gave me a job. That culminated with me being hired as the local tv program manager, shooting, editing, producing tv shows and working with community volunteers. I wrote the company volunteer training manual and was the beta tester for new computer programs.
Computers were my passion beginning with my trusty KayPro “lunchbox” portable. Everything I learned was by trial and error, reading anything I could get my hands on. Now it is a constant stream of on-line tutorials and webinars. I launched my own business, DocPC video and web creation, twenty years ago. We create software for on-line incentive and registration programs, video production, websites etc. It is creative team effort combining video editing, photography, writing and technology.
