I think that on a broader scale, my goal is to always pursue that which I become curious about, no matter what it is.

I was first 14 when I discovered Cinema 4D and After Effects in a youtube tutorial on how to make "Intros" for youtube channels. I have no idea why, but it sparked a small fire within me that just wanted me to play around with the software as much as I could. I would make 1 "Intro" per day, all for fun and for the sake of getting better at something through practice and endeavor. Little did I know this "hobby" could turn into a career.
