SCREEN: What's your favorite day of the week? Why?
LOVE: Monday. Because it is the start to the week and I look forward to what the next 7 days have in store.
SCREEN: Can you cook? If so, what's your go-to dish?
LOVE: I would say I can cook, I like to dabble with new online recipes every now and then, but how they turn out is a different story . My go to dish is homestyle fried chicken.
SCREEN: How did Free Spirit Media prepare you for your career?
LOVE: Free Spirit Media first took me in with open arms, and initially taught me the soft skills I still use today to get work and make professional connections, like resume building, professional development, and relationship building. They were the first to let me get hands-on with gear, showed me how things work, and what kind of opportunities are out here for the industry. They also provided me some of my first industry opportunities, from being a sideline reporter on a Chicago Skyy Basketball game, to working as a camera apprentice on Transformers 3 in 2010, to filming events for Nike & TEDx, to arranging internships for me at production houses like Radar Studios and Big Shoulders. They've given me access to rub shoulders with many great people in the industry who have also given me the opportunity to begin an amazing journey to what I hope will be a long an prosperous career.
