started expressing my creative side when... I learned how to turn on

the TV. I doodled what I liked to watch. Then, in elementary school, I constantly drew the cartoons in my notebook. My classmates noticed and asked me to draw random things for them as well.

The greatest moment of my career has been... directing a spotlight video of a

student from one of my previous internships. He was on the verge of dropping out of high school, but he never gave up and graduated. I was touched by his story and I was honored to film it. My spirit animal is probably a... mouse,

it guides me—digitally.

If I could illustrate any celebrity, I’d choose... Derek Zoolander.
