“Birdwatching” began purely as a one-off video on my YouTube channel, which mostly consisted of video production, journalism and motion design reels. But it allowed my to fall back in love with commercial aviation, which led to me producing more videos on the ground and in the air. After reuniting with Marcus, my closest friend of nearly 20 years, both of us now living in the Mid-Atlantic allowed me to explore trains, something I’ve always been curious about since childhood. With Amtrak and one of the largest subway systems at my disposal, he joked about a “train spotting” series.

Following the Kandi Burruss school of thought, I decided to make “Trainspotting” a reality.
