What is your creative mission?
I want to heal the world through sharing innovative and inspirational ideas.
What do you love about what you do?
I love having the opportunity to live my dream through sharing my creativity and collaborating with others daily in a variety of forms.
What have you learned from your successes/ failures?
You can make your own luck. 😉
How do you keep pushing ahead after a difficult challenge?
Think of everything as part of the larger picture. I often ask myself, “Will I remember this in a year? Will it matter in a year?” That always puts everything into perspective; few challenges are ever as dire as they seem.
Have you ever encountered resistance from family, friends, or the world in general? How did you overcome those kinds of blocks?
My family has always been nothing but a positive and motivational influence, but some people may not completely understand what I do. I like the idea of ‘showing’ and not ‘telling’ to help them to better understand.
How has your art and creativity healed you?
Art and creativity are great ways to express myself in a way that I can share with others. You can convey so many emotions and important issues through them.
What are your NFA Bullet points? What steps would you recommend for anyone who wants to kick some ass and get their creative dreams off the ground?
-Create your own luck.
-Work diligently and smartly.
-Make time for your creativity; make it a priority.
-Be independent; just because everyone else does something, whether it is dressing in a particular way or a 9-5, doesn’t mean you must.
-Always strive to learn more.
