I never understood the theory of moving to New York or L.A. to make it—if you want to be noticed as a drop of water, why would you move to the ocean?
Why do people move to ‘the ocean’?
Because you have incredible access to potential mentors and people to learn from.
Because of the diversity.
Because there’s no sense of pride in getting noticed as a drop of water in the desert.
Because if you make it here, you can make it anywhere.
