Was there a defining moment when you knew you were destined to become a creative professional?

My grandfather once gave me a newspaper article about my grandmother, who was a gifted actress. It’s been a lifelong reminder of the importance of pursuing one's bliss.

How do you weave your professional background into the classroom experience?

I make sure to go over several exercises with each class that are drawn from what I’ve learned in my professional career. One of those things I’ve learned is that the best work comes when you have an “all-in” commitment.

What’s the most important thing you impart to students to help them succeed in class and the real world?

As a filmmaker, your work is only as good as the effort you put into it.
