questionnaire

1) What was your very first job?

I worked at a store called Juice Stop making smoothies.

 

2) Please describe, in your own words, what your job is and what work it entails.

My job is help develop creative ideas, amazing designs, and thought-provoking stories through creative advertising.

 

3) How did you discover that the creative world was right for you? Was there a time in your life that you credit to this discovery? What was there train of events that brought you to where you are today?

Ever since I was a child I loved all things creative and different. Most of my childhood was spent drawing pictures, making movies, studying artists, and watching Walt Disney talk about magic. If it were not for my Mom’s unwavering support and constant encouragement, I don’t think I would have pursued a career in creativity.

 

4) In your constantly growing and expanding industry, how do you find inspiration to keep your work fresh, innovative and relevant?

I think it’s essential to learn from the past, admire the present, and define the future. Also, Pinterest is the greatest creative tool ever!

 

5) If you had to pick one piece of work or project that you are most proud of, more for the creative work and innovation it required, rather than its recognition or industry “success,” what would it be?

It’s hard to define just one single piece of creative that I’m most proud of, but if I had to pick one, it would be the special packaging I designed for the original Mission Impossible TV series. This was truly a labor of love, innovation, creativity, and huge leap forward for me personally.
