The pursuit of passion can be both a benevolent blessing and a catastrophic curse. One the one hand, having a passion can behave as a beacon. A North Star that relentlessly encourages you to charge ahead and never surrender. On the other hand, this same passion can claw away at your patience, agitate you to make high risk decisions and potentially lead you down a path of personal and financial disaster.
I’ve always had a passion to make things. This manifested itself as a child in the form of obsessive doodling. Doodling migrated to illustration. Illustration merged with the world of graffiti art and graffiti art gave me the creative confidence and aggressive go-getterness that was critical to compete in the professional creative landscape.
