"Many times, people are not going to understand the dream that you have. Because they don’t understand your dream, don’t let that stop you from moving forward."

Born, raised and based in Omaha, Timothy L. Christian always wanted to be in the entertainment business. He’s now living a life that many of us would consider completely surreal – producing movies on locations around the world with high-powered stars such as Margot Robbie, Chris Pine, and Andy Garcia. Timothy sat down for an inspirational Q&A about defining your dreams, being brave enough to pursue them, and the importance of having mentors.
