I have walked in many shoes and experienced many things within life. Although film making was always an interest since childhood, it wasn’t one of my goals. However my experiences and life events have eventually made me more well rounded and brought me to this eventual place where I feel I belong.
Born in Saigon Vietnam during the conflict, my family was fortunate enough to acquire visas to live in America. We lived in Paris, France for 6months before finalizing the paperwork needed to immigrate. We eventually settled in this beautiful city of Chicago. I lived and went to school in the city and eventually moved out into the suburbs. After graduating high school, I served as an Army Reservist while attending college and eventually went to active duty for 3yrs; serving in South Korea and within the states. I achieved the rank of Corporal/E-4 after being discharged and learned many valuable lessons. I learned to take orders without question. I learned to become an expert marksman on the M-16. I learned how to handle Nuclear/Biological/Chemical situations. I learned I can still function without sleep and I learned how to work with computers.
Returning from Active duty I worked a variety of careers, before eventually finding a niche in education. I served as an educator for 8yrs at a school in the suburbs and also served as adjunct faculty at National Lewis University during summer months. As an educator I learned patience and communication skills. I would have continued and retired as an educator if fate hadn’t played a hand in my life once again, which has brought me to where I am.
