I was one of those kids always drawing – I drew all over my textbooks, in all the empty spaces and in the margins. Everything that was in my head came out onto paper. I’ve always been creatively impatient, looking for new challenges and pursuing new dreams. I had a love affair with technology that has always taken me to explore forward, discover new worlds and realize great opportunities.
“The idea of a life time achievement award was always a scary concept to me. Getting an award for a life-time of doing the exact same thing was a horrifying idea, even before I new what I was going to do with my career. I was but certain that I was not going to stay around long enough in any trade to get a life-achievement award of any kind, so there was no sense in worrying about it… I just moved on”.
I’m not a linear thinker, I was born outside the box and I’ve made a career out of it. I came to realize at some point that if there was a pattern to my work, it was that there was no pattern and that change itself was the only constant. Coming to terms with this has served me well as it allowed me to evolve with the times and ride the wave in this impatient, ever-changing, fast paced world of explosive creativity and technological innovation.
