Noah Pink spent ten years working as a writer and director on films and music videos in Halifax and Toronto. Now, he's in Hollywood, working on a new National Geographic TV series about the life of Einstein with industry giants Ron Howard and Brian Grazer.

Noah talks about embracing his own path and deciding not to become a lawyer in a family where that was expected—12 members of his immediate and extended family are lawyers.
