I have been creative all my life. My earliest memory of thinking differently from everyone else was when I was four years old. My parents were invited to a wedding and I wanted to make a gift for the bride-to-be. I told my mom about my design idea to make a bracelet.

My mom helped me trace simple circles onto cardboard. She then took peach fabric and sewed it around the edges. The result was a truly childish and rudimentary piece of junk that the bride happily wore on her wedding day. I do not recall the exact details, but I do remember that I came up with the idea and I successfully executed that idea with the help of others.

Ever since then, I have come up with literally thousands of ideas. In most cases, I have executed the ideas myself, with varying degrees of success. In other cases, I have recorded my ideas and given them away freely from my own heart and volition. Today, I continue my passion for coming up with unique ideas. I boldly proclaim that I can come up with 1,000 ideas on any given project. If you don’t believe me, you’ll just have to hire me and find out for yourself. (Smile!!)
