Message from Jules A. Koostachin
My journey as a digital storyteller (behind the camera) began in 2006. At this particular time, I decided to leave my full time job as a senior manager... best decision of my life. I became a mature student at both George Brown College (Film and Media) and Ryerson University in Toronto (Summer Intensive Film School).
In 2008, I started graduate school at Ryerson University in the Documentary Media Program with four young children at home -- the rest is herstory!
