Introducing Freelance.TV

I'm beyond stoked, nervous, exhausted yet incredibly excited to announce my new venture Freelance TV!

Watch the videos!

It's a collection of stories on freelancing and my upcoming documentary called Freelanced. Over the past 12 months I've been traveling across the United States interviewing as many freelancers as I could find to try to learn as much as I could about freelancing, even though I've been doing it for 10 years already. Before I went full time freelancing again, I really wanted to see if there was anything I was doing wrong or to confirm the things I was doing right. I talked to successful freelancers, people just getting started, people afraid to try it, and everyone in between. Over the next bit, I'll be adding more freelancer's stories as well as teasers for the documentary.

I've spent a majority of my time learning how to film, edit, finding my style, and making mistakes (lots of them). Now, I still have a ways to go but this launch proves if you want it, you can learn it. Start today. I can say this past year has been the most exciting yet, as I've grown in my knowledge for not only video, but freelancing as a whole. Since I'm so stoked on what I learned this past year, I wanted to give someone a year subscription to an education service, that person is Marco.

Huge shoutout to my dear friend Nick Jones for helping me build this beautiful website. Without him, this definitely wouldn't be out there yet nor work as amazing as it does. Also, shoutout to Spencer Harrison for the custom tracks for each video, to Kris Puckett, Claudio Vallejo, and Jared Fitch for helping with all the feedback, and Jeremiah Warren for video advice. Also for my two partners already SONY and InVision for believing in this idea a year ago.

And of course, this wouldn't be possible without the support of everyone I've interviewed so far and allowed me into their homes and sometimes even provided a place to stay and a meal—honestly that was the best part of all of this.

PS: For those curious, here's what I've been filming with.
