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.

The rules of the media industry are ever-changing. It's likely your future job does not exist yet. Embrace disruption and plan for flexibility in response to the unexpected. When making career decisions, think about your next jump. Put yourself in situations that lead to many alternative futures.
