Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, i think, is still the secret of great creative people.
– LEO BURNETT
I have always loved to create. As a child much of my time was spent making art, writing and producing plays and choreographing dances. It was my practical side and fear of becoming a "starving artist" that led me to graphic design. The decision to pursue a degree in this field has been the best decision of my life.
