A dream of mine for years was to go to Bible College in Texas. After things didn’t work out because of finances I went to design school and studied video editing and graphic design. Even in the midst of my new-found passion as an artist, I still never forgot my desire to go to Bible College.
After much exposure to some of Hillsong United DVD’s that documented a youth movement in Sydney, Australia, I began to do research. Turns out it was not only an amazing church but a Bible College that offered a course in TV and Media. It was the perfect place for me.
There I met some amazing people and had some great opportunities. I volunteered for their large conferences as a camera person and assistant. The moment they found out I had some background in video editing and design I was asked to be apart of the youth video team. There I became a faithful volunteer and later was asked to do some paid jobs for albums and weekly church services. This is my demo reel of the work I did. Things were making sense as to why God had me wait things out and go to school first. My passion + my faith and love for Him was going to come together for my = destiny.
Almost 3 years later since I called New South Whales home, my life has changed and I have grown dramatically as a person. I recently went back for a visit. Here is a video I edited together of some of the fun moments I had with my Australian and New Zealand Friends.
In New Zealand, it felt like time stopped. I no longer could hear the clock ticking. We came across the most amazing greenhouse at one of the museum.
When we were out getting lunch I found a little book store which had the most unique books I ever came across. If I was alone I would have spent a few hours in this used book store. Looking through all the rows of books I found a book of poems that caught my attention, I knew this would be perfect for my collection.
The best part of going back and visiting friends was seeing how much they changed and grew. I was also able to see how far I came along, and how much this place was no longer home for me.
On the last day I went to the Harbor and said good bye to the beautiful city, I knew I wouldn’t see it again for a very long time.
