I grew up in Mt. Holly, NC back when it still had family farms. I used to be that kid who knew if you skipped a page (or changed a word) in my bedtime stories. I loved to read and there was literally nothing else I wanted to do. When our parents kicked us out of the house to play, I took my books with me and went to the shade tree.
I read books in the bathtub, with a flashlight under covers, anywhere I could. Even attempted to read at dinner, but my Dad would have none of it. This love of a well-told story is what appeals to me about video editing and it’s why I love this industry so much.
