I invested in the Kolder Creative course in 2021, I thought it will be cool to share my videos with the community in discord or Facebook to get some feedback and evolve through that. Because of the course I learned how to work more efficiently. With the new efficiency/knowledge, I got a new opportunity in my career which was to switch from being a “normal” police officer to be the head of video production at the Bavarian police. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to have a bright career at the age of 21 years old. During that time we did some really cool productions for the special forces. That was a unique experience for me, something that I never had done before. Sadly there is no video to showcase because most of those videos were for internal-usage. (But I got a couple on my phone to show hahaha.) At the same time, I knew that I wasn’t present enough in the communities of KC like I wanted to be. I was scrolling through the posts of KC and saw a members post who wanted to plan a trip to Costa Rica. After a couple meetings things went serious and we got Corona, Musicbed, and Nomatic as Sponsors for the trip. My first ever experience travelling with 7 complete strangers and working for different big brands. During that trip I was happy like never before. Meeting creative minds who share the same passion as me and understand I say. I felt fulfilled in someway. After the trip, my reality changed dramatically. I felt unhappy coming back to my old reality, going to the police office and being surrounded by people who are not passionate about life. People who always talk negatively and attract negativity, which reflected their unhappiness in life. Imagine working everyday with those people? I couldn’t ever share my passion for traveling and creating content with them. Something was stuck inside of me. So was my creativity in work. I was restricted to the stars on my shoulders. I’ve learned that creativity is a small portion you need to be successful at the police office. For my boss, the political aspects were more important than creativity. Now it was clear, I couldn’t fit in here.For the time being, Kyle, Jack, and myself did meetings after meetings. Both were crew members from the KC trip to Costa Rica. We figured out that we wanted to leave our home countries and create whilst living/traveling together. I had to face a big challenge, because a long time of preparation was needed. I had a job to quit, an apartment to empty, a car to sell, and stuff to move to my old hometown. Right before all of that I just invested a lot of money for furniture and had built up a new life near Munich. But I was ready to give all of that up, only to live my dreams. After 3 months of planning and preparing for the next adventure, Cape town was standing in front of the door. My next step on my new path, my chance to create a new future. Here I am now, doing my free-diving license this week and travelling to Namibia next month. I will always follow my heart and passion. I am so happy that I made this life-changing decision and I am thankful that I joined KC, because without KC I would never have met these amazing people, traveled to Costa Rica, or improved my skills. I am thankful for everything, and I wish the best for every KC Member.
