Alexander talks to us about his time in New York and gives some great advice on living life.

My name is Alexander Norling and I'm from Sweden. I'm now living in New York City and am about to graduate from Miami Ad School where I've spent the last 2 years attending their Art Direction program. I'm 21 years old and have no idea what bachelors and master degree means, but it does sound cool.

What was your first ever job?

I started getting paid as a photographer when I was 16 years old. Back then I used to take photos every night at a nightclub in my hometown. And during high school I was interning at Dearvalley, a small creative shop in Sweden, for thee weeks which, after graduation, lead to a job there as an art director assistant. I guess that was my first real job.
