"[ODU Professors] really teach you the hands-on experience, especially with what I do behind the camera. And that was able to build my skill set so that when [restaurants] wanted to do video, they weren't getting an amateur, they were getting somebody who actually had hands on experience already with professionals that have been in the field."
