Eternal optimist. Forever hungry. Always clumsy.
Hunger, on the surface of it, has very little to do with advertising. When you think about it, the word hungry doesn't have the most creative connotation. It comes across as a challenge, something that needs to be managed, overcome or dealt with. However, when there’s plenty of food available, hunger is actually a lovely part of the overall eating experience. Simply put, food tastes better when you’re hungry. Does that make sense?
Well, in this hungry, empty space lies my potential.
All that I am not, is all that I can be.
Someone new can only come and sit next to you if a seat is free.
Something unexpected only happens when there is space for it.
Somehow truly invigorating experiences only really occur in the unknown.
As an individual, I am eager to experience new things, eager to read more, listen more and assimilate as much as I possibly can, making me an informed creative professional.
I'm always hungry.
