I understood the purpose and power of creativity, long before I knew advertising. I grew up in paradise, a tiny tropical island where I learnt art from nature, danced in festivals of freedom and was lulled to sleep by the cadence of our world that the ocean memorized and sung. On the island I learnt through living the art of what it means to be human and the beauty of who we are. 

 

My ability to see the order in chaos makes me a disbeliever of coincidence and a firm believer in purpose. Highly intuitive, incredibly strategic and innovative I use my gifts to craft ideas and systems of love that result in global positive change.

Naadiya is a rockstar. She is not only incredibly talented but incredibly hard working. I loved having her in the class as her work consistently challenged the class to do better.
