"In the beginning, you had already owned an affordable camera and some editing software, but you didn’t take it seriously. What was it about doing that first video that changed your mind? The whole process of it was dope to me. I was able to go out and shoot guerilla style. I was able to edit my work and see a product I was proud of. I was always into art, drawing and creating things but in school I never thought I could be a director. I always loved movies but I never knew it was a lane for me to do that. Being that you have several music videos and commercials under your belt, how important is time when you’re working? In my field, time is very important. When I show upon set people are looking tome for answers, and I have To be considerate of my time, the artist’s time, and about my crew’s time. If I go a half an hour over a budgeted video, we’re losing money and paying overages, so we don’t want to do that. Would you say there is a particular time of the day where you’re the most productive? I would say from 1am to 5am. I’m up every night until 6am, and then I’ll sleep 3 or 4 hours. I feel like when everybody else is asleep, I’m out here trying to create things for the next day. Why are you so attracted to the G-Shock brand? The reason I like G-Shock is because there’s so many different colors and ways you can mix them up. I just need a watch to tell me what time it is, to look good and tobe reliable. Not something that’s going to take me away from spending more quality time with my family. Things are getting crazy with all this technology. I prefer to just keep it classic."
