A story of perseverance
Overcoming obstacles has been a reccurring theme throughout my career. They said it'd be hard to get into Fanshawe Music Industry Arts, and it was. They said it's hard to get into sound as a career, and it was. It'll be harder to get a studio gig in Toronto, it was. It'd be impossible definitely to get a work visa for the USA and even if you did, you'll NEVER get a studio job there, I found a way. They said assistants never move up to mixers, I did.
"They" say never a lot. You should never listen to "they". You should keep going.
