An Insider's view of Living Security

What does your typical day look like?

I could be helping my team with the development of our next big idea, I might be behind the camera on the set of a training series, or I'll be in the editing room putting a video together. Having this type of variety in my role keeps me fresh and on my toes; always thinking of new and better ways to accomplish my tasks and help my team.
