@GameBasketballShortFilm: What’s a defin

@GameBasketballShortFilm: What’s a defining moment in your life? A major defining moment in my life was working as a public school teacher in New York City after graduating from college. I joined the Teach For America program, and taught for several years in a middle school in the Bronx. The experience really helped define who I am and profoundly influenced how I see the world. I probably learned more than I taught, but I gave it everything and loved working with that unique age bracket of teenagers. In many ways, the experience inspired me to become a filmmaker and storyteller.
