Describe your path to what you're doing now.
I've always been doing stuff. I started early drawing comics, moved over to art, fell in love with film making and had a quick romance with game making. I had a hard time deciding on what I wanted to do. But, after going through so many different paths, I finally decided to go into advertising. It’s the only industry were I can pursue all of my passions.
