The best part of his day is when he leaves his corporate job and stops to watch the skateboarders on his way home. The sight takes him back to high school, where, as new immigrant, he proudly used to walk around strutting his skateboard – his new North American persona – until he was bullied into giving up his passion.
As he remembers the bullying, he remembers feeling a lack of belonging and frustration with not being able to enjoy skating because he didn’t fit the “look”. Once again, he turns away. Then one day, life offers him another chance.

In January 2016 I started making YouTube videos. The goal was simple, as an actor and aspiring film maker I wanted to learn the craft of shooting and editing videos. I have always enjoyed writing but did not have the technical know-how to execute my ideas and bring them to life.
To change that, I gave myself the goal of publishing one video a week for 2016. This goal is the reason I was able to make my vision a reality.
