What do you watch/listen to while working?

Most recently it’s been something like:

What have you been working on lately?

Some show branding & evergreen clips for MTV News. Did a quick series of Teen PSAs you can see here.

What work of yours are you most proud of?
Can you tell us about your process?
Any last advice for the folks just starting out?

Keep it positive, find your strengths and polish them. Often it’s all about being persistent, busting your ass, and knowing without proof that you can pull something off. Make friends that you can discuss & grow with. It’s okay to change your mind. Pursue your curiosities whole-heartedly. Never ever discourage others’ work to confirm your own taste or value, instead simply do it by making great work.
