“I liked playing with fire as a child. As an adult, I still have a love for fire and turned to cultivating the life-fire within myself as opposed to walking the edge of burning down a building. Each of us has within us anything between a flame or a bon fire that drives us to creativity and is the overall fuel for our lives. I feed my wild fire with many of the people, places and things in the world as my eternal inspirations.”
