"Genius is magical, not material. If you don't have the magic, no amount of wishing will make it so."- Jim Bennett, The Gambler
"At a young age I had a natural love for ideas, creativity and imagination. I remember doodling logos in elementary school before I knew what a logo was. Everywhere I'd go, ideas seemed to follow…maybe I was the one following the ideas. Constant, random ideas would come to mind at any given moment for ads, tag lines, products, the future, inventions, commercials, movies, how to make something better, world changing ideas, experimental concepts. You name it. My passion is advertising, design, creativity, innovative ideas.
I was never interested in doing things how they were "supposed" to be done (but that doesn't mean I don't know how to follow direction) It never made sense to me to think and do things like everyone else. Why would you want to? Especially as a creative. My belief is that nothing is impossible. It is only a matter of when and how. I want to make good work for good companies and the rest will follow.
Create passionately, 25 hours a day and figure out how to get that extra hour."
