I’m an aspiring creative director that has a passion for the expressive arts. It started when I was 13 years old when I picked up my first guitar. At the time, my hand and eye-coordination was absolutely terrible and I made a lot of noise instead of music, but practice makes perfect – well, almost. I like to think there’s always room for improvement.
As a college student, I didn’t wake up one day and decide I want to be a creative director. I went through a phase where I wanted to be doctor because let’s face it, Grey’s Anatomy is a phenomenal show. I also went through as phase where I wanted to be an event planner, an interior designer, and an architect. Truthfully, it took a lot of time, mistakes and experience for me to realise that this is what I want to do for the rest of my career.
Growing up during my formative years, I lived in a small town in the south west of England, where everyone knew each other and everyone went to the same school. There were not a lot of things to do apart from school and hanging out with my friends at the local park. Because of this, it made me crave to experience the world outside the lovely town of Warminster. It also helped that my best friends got me into the arts. To this day, I still remember how much I enjoyed all of those classes. Through those learning experiences, it helped me enhance my eye and ear for creativity – may it be in the form of acting, music, or still-life. Also with the help of life experiences and my exposure to different cultures from my adventures in Asia, Europe and United States, that I thank my parents for, made me realise what I enjoy the most is bringing creative ideas to life, and creating an impact not only to people but also contributing to our ever evolving popular culture.
