There is very little I would change about my life and the next 50 years will be extraordinary. I love being a creative person. It wasn't always this way. For 25 years I was a technology and business strategist. I consulted to global companies from the their mailroom to the boardroom.
The combination of left and right brain seems to work well for me. As a professional brand developer, seeing things from the audience point of view. I put myself in the encounter and wrestle with it. What do I want them to think, feel and do? In what context will they interact with the media? And on what platform or device?
My fine art is steeped in adventure. Whether I'm two days up a remote canyon or in the studio experimenting with light and form - I am in my element.
My advise to others: You must be willing to do what others won't then achieve an extraordinary outcome through intuition and talent. Sometimes you have to adventure over and over, and in the process, your soul fills up and you become a richer person.
Welcome, O life! I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race. - James Joyce
