Challenge accepted — always.

I once taped a paperclip to the end of a paintbrush to use as a bone folder. It worked flawlessly. Moral of the story: lacking the “right” tools or the option to do things the easy way doesn’t stop me.

I take pride in finding creative solutions when the easy solution isn't available, or even when it is. I attack challenges head-on and learn as I go if I don't have or know everything from the start. Creative perseverance is something you can expect from me — always.
