Don't be afraid of unconventional career paths. Just because most of your class, friends or family work in a certain industry does not mean you have to. Combining your interests is easier than you might think. If you work hard and put yourself out there, you'll meet the right people to help you along the way.

I don't like sitting around talking about gear or plug-ins. For me, mastering engineering is all about listening! It’s about making decisions and having confidence in the creative direction you’ve chosen. So be a good listener.
