I have become the art director I am today because of skateboarding. Mentally, physically, and emotionally.
At its core, art direction is creative problem solving mixed with heart and a lot of patience. The same can be said for skateboarding.
Each problem you solve or trick you attempt is a completely unique experience and requires its own individual attention. But, the focus you put forth means nothing without heart.
Skateboarding, as well as my advertising education, has taught me that its ok to fail. I’ve made many mistakes but, I’ve learned something from each one and grown from it. I firmly believe that skateboarding and advertising have given me the tools and perspective to complete any project I am given.
