When Danielle discovered that you can actually make a living by making movies, She searched far and wide for a role model. Unfortunately, small town living didn't afford her a real life example of what it could look like to work in a creative field for a career.
Commentaries and behind-the-scenes featurettes on DVDs provided her with a source of education, but all those people who worked in Hollywood seemed so far away, and that life seemed very out of reach.
Fast forward a decade and a bit, and she is actively living a creative life. She works on film sets, creates her own projects, and loves what she is doing everyday. And that's what Danielle wants for young people.
The Creative Type is her way of giving back. It's her way of showing that it is possible to have a life in a creative field, whether that be music, visual arts, photography, or just about anything else that requires skill and creativity. In effect, it's her way of being who she needed when she was younger.
