Early - My Life Since Dora High School
high school I worked indefinitely changing jobs and not really
interested in college as of yet. This all changed in the Fall
of 2005 when I was laid off from my position at the HealthSouth
Regional Business Office(originally located in Pelham, AL) after
only about 2 years working there. The sudden knowledge of the
coming end about a month beforehand rekindled the fire of the
goal I had always had since high school; finding a career using
my artistic abilities combined with the use of technology. After
I left HealthSouth, I searched colleges that offered an associates
degree in what I liked to do. I attended a college in Nashville,
TN, last year for one quarter and realized it would not get me
any closer to my dream job. I left there and came back to Alabama.
In October 2006, after still not finding suitable employment
for my financial situation I found The Los Angeles Film School.
It offers a certificate program that works well with my age and
attention span. I enrolled in October 2006 and started in February
of 2007. I am obviously fairly new to L.A. but I have adjusted
well. I am in the Production Design Program with a minor in Producing.
I chose the school because of it's close proximity to the major
studios and the theme parks. Oh, did I forget the beach; yeah,
the beach is about 20 minutes away. Anyway, I do miss my family,
but not the state of AL. I have flown back twice and every time
I step off the plane the humidity hits me like a ton of bricks.
I guess I am too used to this dry California atmosphere. Anyway,
I am doing well and having a blast in the no. 2 city that never
sleeps, after New York. The city is laid out in such a way that
it is pretty easy to navigate as long as you know where the areas
are to stay away from( Compton and Inglewood-Gang Territory)
