What do you want to ask Maestro?

I understand that you dropped everything to follow your dreams. What was your method of income to cover your living expenses? How much do you recommend saving?

When I first moved out to Los Angeles I has no job or leads or anything like that, I just new I wanted to land an internship with a director named Dave Meyers. I had saved up $3,000, $1,800 of which I spent moving in and I figured the remainder would give me about a month’s time to find work. A few weeks later I found a job at two different restaurants as a food runner and that became my income, maybe I was making a little over $2,000 each month which barely covered all that I needed at 19 years old. As far as what I would recommend to save, that really depends on where you are moving and what your situation is.
