We had the good fortune of connecting with Obrien Hutchison and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Obrien, career-wise, where do you want to be in the end?
I plan to be an accomplished writer and producer in the film world as well as have my company at the level of the top production companies in the industry.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I love to write psychological thriller and drama, would also love to get into comedy writing. I would say I’ve made it this far by not quitting on myself or my goals and ambitions. Having faith and believing in myself are what drives me most. Ive learned many lessons along the way but the most powerful is that the only way to make it where you’re trying to go is to never quit, even when things seem impossible.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Im really big on anything revolving art or creativity. Checking out museums, live music and comedy shows are my go to. Big sports fans too, so I’m always down to check out an event . Im a big foodie, therefore I love trying different foods so taking someone to my favorite restaurants is definitely on the agenda.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like thank my family, friends and military family for all of their encouragement and support throughout my journey. Without them being there for me early on, I don’t think I’d be here today.
