My First Job: Matthew Mozisek

• Name: Matt Albrecht
• Age: 29
• City of residence: Victoria
• Current title: Land man and partner with Eye From the Sky Aerial Photography
• First job: I was a projectionist at a 1920s movie theater during ninth grade. I got free candy and saw all the movies, so I was living high on the hog. I saw "Titanic" about 20 times, though, so that was bad.
• What it taught me: That was my first real experience working with technical machinery, so it gave me a sense of knowing how to build something. It also gave me discipline. I had to be there on time and make sure everything went on the way it was supposed to, in the right order. People were depending on me.
