WHAT DROVE YOU TO PURSUE A CAREER IN THE CREATIVE INDUSTRIES, IN PARTICULAR BECOMING AN ART DIRECTOR?

The cliché answer is the fact that I have always been creative, having been able to draw from a young age; I was always attracted to the more creative outlook and career path. I studied fine art during college and kind of despised the idea of just sitting drawing and painting from real life. But when I did my foundation I did visual communications and I started to learn more creative and visual ways of delivering an idea. However, I was not a fan of the way I was taught about artists spending ridiculous amounts of money and time doing a piece for no real purpose. Then I started searching for degrees in creativity with a purpose and found advertising really appealed to me.
