There isn’t much that has left an impression on me from my adolescence. If I had to name something, I would say that it was having been exposed to design in my high school years. This would change the course of my life dramatically. I was blessed to have been able to find something that I truly wanted to study and pursue passionately, and the five years of going to design school was a very enjoyable moment of my life. Once I started working, I changed jobs almost once a year. I think it was a period in my life when I had to undergo training to test my mettle. By exposing myself to a variety of industries and occupations, I believe that I was able to foster the ability to respond to things that were alien to me. I think that my ability to adapt to various situations can be traced back to the experiences I had back then.
After experiencing a whole host of different jobs, I realized that my ultimate objective was to create my own piece of work. I was able to see what it was that I was supposed to strive for after having undergone many career changes. In 2006, I was finally able start my own company.
When I started my own company, I did not even have an office, so I used my home as a substitute. I was able to obtain an office after the suggestions of one of my customers, but I realized that as my enterprise grew so, too, did the things that I had to worry about. What I learned then through those challenges was that it was important to solve “one thing at a time.” My personal experiences have taught me that if you try to make haste and go after several things at once, it will only compound the problem.
