Music, film, and education have been the major pillars of my life from a very early age. Growing up playing with a VHS camera in middle school, playing in rock bands in high school, and later making films in college- I’ve always strived to find ways to connect these passions in my life.
A little over a year ago I began working as the Programming & Outreach Manager for NFFTY (National Film Festival for Talented Youth). When I found out we were going to be a benefactor for the Little Big Show, my creative gears started turning and I immediately saw an opportunity to show people how cool it is when creative worlds collide. After documenting our concert, meeting fellow youth arts non-profits, and working creatively with KEXP, Starbucks, STG, and other local youth filmmakers I am proud to share The Making of Little Big Show- I hope it’s as fun for an audience to watch as it was for all of us to create.

For nine years, volunteers from Starbucks Coffee Company have been helping us prepare young people for life by conducting mock interviews with students in our Barista Training and Education Program, a partnership between YouthCare and FareStart. For the past five years, Store Manager Cole Poppsinger has coordinated the effort, and it’s grown immensely in that time. Now, each month, students meet with managers of Starbucks locations throughout the downtown Seattle area.
