Podcasts, Movies and More

My guest today, Trevor Valenzuela, is another former student of mine. As with most of the other students, we met when he took the acting I class. We have an extra connection through podcasting. He knows a lot about movies and it was fun talking with him about our mutual love of them. As you can see by his photo, Trevor has a sense of humor.

Trevor Valenzuela is an amateur filmmaker and podcaster from Sierra Vista, AZ. When not creating, he spends his free time consuming stories however he can, usually through games, comics, and movies.

I grew up in the West, the descendant of people traveling by wagon train to a new life. Some of their determination and wanderlust became a part of me. I imagine them sitting around the campfire telling stories, which is why I became first a theatre artist, then a teacher and now a writer. They are all ways of telling stories.
