Figuring Out What I'm All About

This year, up to this point, has been absolutely ridiculous.

Even now, sitting at my desk, I can’t believe even half of what I’ve done - everything from shooting a docu-series in South America to editing TV spots in New York City. My life is practically unrecognizable from what it was a year ago.

In my mind, this is a massively positive development.

That being said, things have happened very quickly and though I’ve felt myself grow in innumerable ways, I sense a dissonance between where I’m at emotionally and what I want to be doing. I don’t think I’m quite ready to be telling the stories that I want to be telling at this current stage of my life. And at the same time, I don’t think I know how to be a 21 year old. What does that mean in this weird & wild world?

These massive shifts taking place in and around me are disorienting. So I think the purpose of these words is to kick-start a project I’ve been meaning to tackle for too long: the creation of a place where I can publish my thoughts on the projects I am currently engaged in. I like to think of it as opening a little window that shines a light on what I’m up to.

I’ll leave things there for now.
