In fifth grade I was in my first play. By sixth grade, I'd fallen in love with theater and acting. By seventh grade, I knew I wanted to be a movie actor. As much as I loved performing in the theater, I had always found films to be especially powerful to me. By eleventh grade I had purchased my own camera and began to understand that there is much more that goes into making movies that just the actors you see on the screen. From eleventh grade on, I knew that I would be a director. By twelfth grade, I knew that I would spend rest of my life writing over dramatic, pretentious descriptions of myself.
