Why did you first start learning German?
I liked the teachers.

What did you get out of your German studies?
I got a deeper appreciation for foreign cultures and history. Also, learning German made me understand English better. Traveling and living in Germany definitely gave me more confidence and grow as an individual.

What influence did German have on your career choices?
It did not really influence the choices I made, per se, but knowing German provided me more opportunities - I've been cast in WWII era projects, asked to help produce projects that involve German.

How do you use German today at home or in your work?
I work with many German audiobook narrators and cast/produce educational German audiobooks as part of my regular job.
