PLUG-INS
Getting there + New Interviews!

 

Hey what’s up! Yes, the pressure to make cool new stuff continues but yesterday I sat down with Chris Do to discuss work, life and the difficulty trying (and sometimes failing) to balance many ambitious projects at once! We also talk about Plug-ins, projects, intercept and my goals for 2018!

 

The truth is, I should have been more open and honest these passed months. The truth is, there really is lot of pressure to make cool things and I’ve been struggling with it.

 

All I wanted to do was SHOW you what we have been working on and not tell you about it. I really miss the fun side of VC and I’m working on bringing it back for good!

Here is another bonus interview with a mini-tour of Video Copilot with my friend Andrew Price!
