Mastery Journal p1

I believe that everyone has a purpose in this life. It is your duty to find out whatever it may be for you and you must fulfill that purpose to the very best of your ability. True happiness is something that comes with being fulfilled. A continuous journey of doing something with true meaning, from a place of passion, empathy, and excitement.  

My intent is to become the best possible version of myself. I am on a journey not only to mastery of motion graphics and cinematography, but also, a journey to mastery of myself. I aim to push the status quo and to help the world become a better place. What better way to do that other than through storytelling?

“Stories are all around us.  They are what move us, make us feel alive, and inspire us. Our appetite for stories is a reflection of the basic human need to understand patterns of life — not merely as an intellectual exercise but as a personal, emotional experience. Stories are the way to reach out to people and emotionally connect.” - Andy Smith

Stories can be found anywhere, in any object, any person, any idea. Stories have the power to influence, to inspire, motivate, inform, challenge, etcetera, etcetera. So my message, my story, my intent – can be communicated not only with words but through my work, the things that I create. This is why I decided to attend Full Sail University. To learn the necessary skills and gain the tools to pursue my dreams and fulfill my life’s purpose. 

With a Bachelor of Science degree in Digital Art & Design, I have already taken the first few steps towards reaching my goal of becoming the best version of myself. I’ve learned to translate my thoughts and ideas through design to reach any desired audience. This can be done through sounds, music, shapes, video, animation, colors, typography, touch, the means are almost endless! 

I now am attending Full Sail University again reaching for my Masters Degree in Film Production. I am excited to learn the elements behind creating films and everything I can over the next 12months and beyond as this will only give me more ammo of which I can use to unleash my stories upon the world. Change is coming, and I will be on the front lines with my mac, my ideas, and my stories changing lives and pushing the human race forward and each individual towards their full potential.

Thank you.
