REASONS I LOVE MY CAREER IN FREELANCE TV

I freelance in the camera department of mostly reality shows & commercials.
  1. β€’
    I get to meet/work with amazing people (and animals)
    It's rare (to me at least) to work on a crew that I dread. And sometimes you get to hangout with animals. This three legged "Champion" was a neighborhood dog when I worked on Hoarders.
  2. β€’
    FREE FOOD!
    Sometimes you get used to all the awesome food (especially if you're on a Food Network show or something) that you get disappointed in a meal here and there but then I remember I didn't pay for it so it's really not that bad.
  3. β€’
    I get to take cool photos
    I try to snap photos when I can. Landscapes are my favorite.
  4. β€’
    You get to travel!
    I've done shows in small towns and big cities. Kind of cool seeing how people across the country live. I'm moving to San Diego for 4 months in December. Where my San Diego listers at!?
  5. β€’
    It's never boring
    For example, I got to hangout in an airplane hangar last week and film private jets.
  6. β€’
    I have time to write and pursue other passions
    I always wanted to be a screenwriter for a living but sometimes you have to pay the bills and playing with cameras is fun. I still write as much as I can though.
  7. β€’
    I can unplug for a while
    Usually when you're working 60+ hour weeks you don't have time to be online. It also helps if you're in the middle of nowhere and don't get reception as well.

    WRAP PARTIES!
    This is self-explanatory 🍾🀘🏻🍻

    I try to make the most of my days off.

    Listened to vinyl during my morning routine
    This was my dad's turntable growing up and it's amazing. Today was all about The Strokes!
  12. β€’
    Played with my Lite Brite
    I've been trying to do a bunch of emojis but I need to order more pieces... This peach is coming along though.
  13. β€’
    Played my drums
    I grew up playing the drums but kind of gave up somewhere in high school but IM COMING BACK TO IT! I'd give my skills a C+ right now.
  14. β€’
    It's 64 degrees in Mid-November (in PA) and I'm going for a run

    May finally try to finish the book I've been reading for 2 months...
