I 'm the 27-year-old son of a poor immigrant. Before I left college I had lived in twelve homes all across the united states. My family has always struggled to get buy but with hard work, undying belief in the American dream and a supportive loving family I strove to better myself and go to college. Three years into Architecture the housing market collapsed and I was forced out of school to sell vacumes door to door 80 hours a week for an average of well below 100 a week. Eventually, I fought my way out and went back to school. I graduated in media arts in a state without enough PA work to allow me to work full time. Instead of finding another career I 've been working nonstop for minimum wage at a fast food joint so that I may take the odd PA job and craft short films as an independent hobby.
According to my IMDB page, I 've directed 16 shorts, more if you count shorts I 've directed for other people and I 've even had my hand directing a few commercials. In the five years since I 've been a part of the industry, I 've directed close to thirty shorts of varying size and complexity. I cut my teeth on student films, fast cheap and without equipment as my school had none. In college, I shot at least if not more than double the movies I was assigned. Sometimes we weren 't assigned short films we were assigned video exercises but I treat every second I have around cameras as an opportunity to tell stories, I have no exercises to my name I have short films I have…
On November 17th, 2016 at approximately 2:54pm, I, Investigator James Poffel heard a call come over the police radio in reference to shots being fired in the area of 9th and Emporia. While en route to the area of the call, I heard Officer Ogden arrive on scene and advised there was a fight in the road. Several other officers and I arrived on scene shortly thereafter.
Once on scene, I began assessing the situation. I was informed that there was a witness inside the Early Childhood Center…

Moving to the United States was a very hard transition for me. Learning how to
speak the American English, and learning their spelling words was so difficult because I
was raised speaking British English, learning the morals, culture and how you guys
communicated with one another was also a hard part of moving down here.
I already knew how to speak English when I moved to the United…
On the first day the class, started when I found out what the project was going to entail I wasn't sure what I wanted to do and I felt really overwhelmed. One reason I felt really overwhelmed was due to the fact that when I am given an assignment I hate when I have free rage, I am a very indecisive person and avoid making a decision at all cost. After hearing that we could do pretty much anything we wanted for our project it was my worst nightmare. After hearing we could pick…
Everyone has that one person who leaves a footprint on their life, no matter what it is. That one person who helps you conquer life and makes you want to strive to better yourself. Some people may not realize it, some may not know who that person is off of the top of their head, I didn't either. School was never something that I really excelled in, but I was always good at one thing, writing. I didn't really applied myself in high school and that really set me back…
On July 12, 2015, I was dispatched to investigate the report of a single wide trailer engulfed in flames at #313 N 6th Street in Sierra Vista, Arizona (CCSO DR #15-10075). The investigation revealed a man named Michael Churney became involved in an intense argument with his girlfriend. He had lost his girlfriend, lost custody of his children, been fired from his job, and as a result, became enraged and set fire to his single wide trailer home. He fled the area, telephoned family members,…

“Glory looks like a Chinese mongoloid,” was what Anne said. Probably the worst insult I’ve heard from anyone. Also the one that really sparked my insecurities. All throughout my life, I was unbothered with comments such as that. Then grade nine came and somehow, that comment made me an insecure young girl. This experience help me learn to be careful with my words as it can affect one’s life. Not only that, I also learned to…
Kris is a 3 years old boy. He was the second one arrived at the daycare around 10:00. Before he came, the other girl had started paining in the art centre. JL’s mother dropped off him. As soon as his mother turned around, he pulled her arm to stop his mother leaving. She kissed on his cheek. Then she passed him to the host teacher, he started whining immediately. I got down to greet him; he hugged me so wildly that he pushed me down on the floor, which made him laugh. Then I hold his…
The summer disaster
It was a hot day in the middle of summer. I wanted to get out of the house, even though it was about 90 degrees outside. So, I got the keys to the garage and got my bike out. I hooked the keys to my belt and sped off. Unfortunately, I live in a terrible neighborhood. So, I was taking some different paths when I decided to go to Thomas Jefferson Elementary. There was trash on the street and broken beer bottles. I stopped and…
I wake up in the middle of the night with my heart pounding. I try to concentrate on slowing down my heartbeat, while my eyes try to adjust in the darkness. My dreams are filled with fears and insecurities about my future. Lately these dreams are becoming more frequent. Have I really wasted so much time? Am I at a standstill and my subconscious is so worried that it keeps me awake at night? I lay there worrying but now that I’m awake I can think clearly and my fears subside. There is no real…
