Episode 09: Thirst for Knowledge with Devin Ordoyne
One of the key characteristics all my guests have in common is a desire to know more. A thirst for Knowledge. Whether trying to improve in some areas of their personal lives or the continual pursuit of information for their chosen career, each guest is on a quest to find a deeper understanding. Devin O is no exception. Discovering books at a very early age, Devin has always impressed me with the depth of knowledge he has acquired from reading, studying, and constantly looking for new and often opposing perspectives. Although his profession consists primarily of 30-second ads for new trucks, health insurance, or cable tv service, his true talents lie in the shows he has written and produced while taking his family along for the ride on the ever-challenging roller coaster that is the entertainment industry. Finding along the way that the expected path is not always the one you find yourself on. Being able to adapt and grow to the opportunities you are given is the truest example of how to live your dreams. Devin has been able to do this by growing into the challenges he was given. Proving that patience, while continuing to learn can not only help you to achieve your dreams but also be a role model for others hoping to do the same. Especially when it’s your own kids. Devin has been able to do this remarkably well. While chauffeuring from his kids from audition to audition, he is also taking the time to teach them what the process of learning is really all about.
