Being Creative


  • When he was in college, he put on a concert for fun and it ended up being a lucrative 400-person event.
  • Says the punk rock mentality has carried over from his band days-punk was a group of people coming together for one common interest.
  • He's a self-proclaimed "design geek."
  • Looked around for a film on his interests-graphic design, fonts-and found nothing.
  • Realized that there must be other people out there looking for the same thing; decided to make the film himself.
  • Stresses the importance of making the switch from "I'm thinking about doing this," to "I'm doing this."
  • Says everything around us is "design" and everything has people, stories, and history behind it.
  • Everything comes together little by little-if you constantly take small, incremental steps to improve your life, they'll add up.
