I graduated from Southern Illinois University in 2006 with a bachelor's in film (but I'm from the Chicago area, I just like to point out I'm not a hillbilly for going there). Immediately after spending 4 years working hard in college, I got a job as a janitor, and my life sucked. Then I got a break and I've been working at the same post production house since early 2007. I can honestly say it's better than cleaning outdoor park bathrooms.
