In this podcast, Joey picks up where he left off in Part 1. After high school, knowing that he wanted to continue learning how to make movies, he went to SF State. And then he entered a Justin Lin video contest, and, to his surprise, was one of the finalists.
Joey tells us about a career detour that came after that: He learned about a sleep-technology course, and got a job in that industry that required tough hours (7 p.m. to 7 a.m.). In 2014, a friend told him about a video-editing job at Kink.com that he ended up getting. He was there a couple years before moving over to CBS Interactive to work on gameplay videos.
From there, we pivot to when and how Joey figured out that he loves his hometown—San Francisco.
He ends the podcast talking about making movies about the Richmond District and how he got the "Uncle Fuz" nickname.
We recorded this podcast at Sutro Heights Park in May 2021.
