my goal is to make people, clients, students, collaborators, friends succeed in life. My job is to make people see their own potential and make them realize that there is always something positive within them and the opportunities they seek. When i see them blossom makes me happy. When other companies poach them, makes me happy. Creativity is the cure to all our pessimism.

Art center was an amazing experience due to the fact that you could choose any subject across a lot of different areas. I explore film, painting, photography, religion, typography, concepting, and sculpture. But mainly made me think independently and showed me my own conceptual strenghts.
