Q. What are some highlights from your THF internship experience?

Working for Paramount Pictures was an incredible opportunity that I would not have had if it weren’t for THF. Also, the opportunity to be a part of a community that supports my career success has been extremely beneficial, especially in times of doubt

Q. How has your involvement with the T. Howard Foundation influenced your career?

It has helped me to launch my career and brand as a filmmaker. When I mention to people that I am a part of the THF alumni community there is an immediate positive response. Also, the opportunity to network with individuals in the entertainment industry that I would not have had otherwise.

Q. What advice would you give to THF interns and alumni as they begin their careers in the media industry, more specifically production?       

Network as much as you can and stay positive. The entertainment industry can be tough but a positive attitude will go a long way.
