Most of my career has been in the Information Technology (IT) sector. In order to maintain my skills and move up into better paying positions, I took a number of great training programs.
When I switched my area of interest to the entertainment field… I knew that I would need to get a quick but comprehensive education. I took courses in sound, video, composition and other relevant technologies.
