Love the video!! Much more engaging than just text. And unlike my peer who previously commented, I love the editing! Way to make a talking-head video visually engaging. :-D (I suppose I might cut it down to 10m if it were me, but otherwise great)

This may be the most irritating video I've ever seen! Way too much cutting and hand-waving, which is very distracting from the interview message.
