HI, 

I'M MAGIC

The ability to take from my imagination and place ideas into reality is perhaps the greatest magic I've ever seen. It is my joy and my obsession. I spent the first 15 years of my life, growing up on a tiny, secluded tropical island that many have dubbed paradise. Life there felt magical and the experiences have melded into my heart a permanent affinity for beauty, love, culture and people.

 

As a deep thinker, I'm very much hyper aware of the magic and beauty that fills this world. I feverishly study it's complex systems and sophisticated constructs, so that I too can yield a power that connects and inspires. If I were a mythological being, I would be – "The Creator of Beauty".
