👌pinch me! I've been told you should celebrate all wins in life big or small & today I was hired as a contract designer for FOX broadcasting. I have been so BLESSED in my career & never ever thought I would be part of the entertainment industry in Los Angeles.
[enter sappy part] But I tell you what if I didn't have all the design projects in my portfolio, recommendations from former bosses & colleagues, guidance in my field & so much hand holding along the way from all the people close to me there is no way I would of been able to step foot on that studio lot for an interview. I am thankful to each & every one of these people! I ❤️u & keep hustlin torwards whatever success means in your life! & always be grateful & humble! #feelslikeiwonanemmy#blessed🙏#thankful#gratefulheart#grateful#love
#tbt a sappy one for my veteran grandfather right after the 4th...I think of him anytime I need an example of strength & inspiration as a designer. Prisoner of war / Carnegie Mellon grad / Miami architect / father to 4 girls / grandfather to 7 grandkids / workaholic / biz owner. He had an infectious laugh & loved getting a rise out of people. He used to joke with me about drawing nudes in design school which I later joked with him about when I attended design school. He was strong & walked on his hands, he was driven, he was fearless, he couldn't sit still ("had ants in his pants"), he was a catch & an amazing grandfather. Today these memories throw me back to the times I spent with him & reminds me of all the admiration & love I have for this man. He is a hard act to follow... #grandfather#veteran#architect#family#strong#fearless#workaholic#admiration#love
