“My creative inspiration is internal. It’s something I feel compelled to do. Some friends always tell me I try to do too much but I wouldn’t feel fulfilled doing anything less. My ideas just require more hands, you can only do so much by yourself and then you have to get other people involved.” 

“How’d you get in touch with your inner voice what gave you the fortitude to follow it?” 

“I’ve always been driven to do things people thought I couldn’t. When I was in the 3rd grade I decided I wanted to play basketball at UCLA and people would say, ‘Oh, that’s a great goal, but what are you really going to do?’ I achieved that goal but it wasn’t necessarily gratifying. After school I played a bit overseas but got hurt and had to embrace fate taking me in a different direction. After achieving my goal but it not being what I thought it was going to be I developed an aversion to being goal oriented and disciplined in that way. I started going with the flow and figured it would take me where I was supposed to go.”
