How do you define creativity and apply it in your career?
Creativity is being able to be adapt and apply a diverse range of inspiration to guide you through your problem solving process. It’s being able to visualize the end goal and work through all the roadblocks that will inevitably pop up. Everyone can be creative, as long as they are willing to be patient and get out of their own way. Another part of being creative is being resilient, because to truly explore you will encounter a lot of trial and error.

Where do you find your best creative inspiration?
Our best creative inspiration comes from collaborating, sharing, and conversations. We also are always looking, whether we are in the studio, on a road trip, walking through the market, we keep our eyes peeled for things to jump out at us.

What’s the one creative advice or tip you wish you’d known as a young person?
Being a professional creative means being creative professionally. There is no set career paths for artists, you need to define your own path. That and charge more for work.
