Many twists and turns. My journey hasn't been linear whatsoever. Before honing in on creative direction, I worked in fashion, journalism, and A&R.
Perfection isn't key, progress is. Understanding that evolving and improving through trial and error will only help make me stronger as a creative has been tough because I'm very much a perfectionist. But it's allowed me a new sense of freedom when creating.
It's very simple, but be kind to everyone. I'm really big on having good energy in the workplace because it can affect work flow and productivity.
Stepping into my confidence as a creative director who didn't have the typical journey to a "CD" title.
When the projects I was working on didn't feel like work but a fun passion project.
Leaving my prior job with a different title to start my own company and build my own clientele was very pivotal.
I'm still working through it, but reaffirming my greatness through words of affirmation have been amazing.
Anytime imposter syndrome sneaks in, I go through the requirements for my job and remind myself that not only do I meet all of thee requirements, but I bring many special and unique skills to the table.
