REASONS I LOVE MY CAREER IN FREELANCE TV
I freelance in the camera department of mostly reality shows & commercials.
- •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.
- •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.
- •I get to take cool photosI try to snap photos when I can. Landscapes are my favorite.
- •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!?
- •It's never boringFor example, I got to hangout in an airplane hangar last week and film private jets.
- •I have time to write and pursue other passionsI 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.
- •I can unplug for a whileUsually 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.
- •Today I...
- •Listened to vinyl during my morning routineThis was my dad's turntable growing up and it's amazing. Today was all about The Strokes!
- •Played with my Lite BriteI've been trying to do a bunch of emojis but I need to order more pieces... This peach is coming along though.
- •Played my drumsI 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.
- •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...Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
