Do you consider yourself a designer or an artist?
Not a big fan of labeling my creativity. I consider myself someone who’s “creative”. That’s my contribution to society, creating different things that touch, move or inspire someone else. If I achieve that, my work is done!
When did you first discover your creative side?
In Middle School Art class, it felt freeing and drawing came naturally. That’s when I became curious about Art Deco and discovered Old Hollywood. I would go to the library and devour anything about that era. Began to study it way more vigorously than my schoolwork.
