Michael Jager



My road in life has been direct.
Realized early on that he wasn't good at math, so he decided to focus on the arts.
Largely inspired by the punk movement; his first date with his future wife was a The Clash concert.
His father worked in a factory and his mom was a beautician, so he says they didn't really "get" his choosing not to have a set career path.
Started Jager Di Paola Kemp design firm with his wife and another partner; got their big break designing campaigns for Burton Snowboards.
Says his collaboration with Burton is a "once in a lifetime deal"; still stunned he gets to work with a company that "invented a culture."
Believes that once you decide what you want to do, you have to proudly wear your work on your sleeve.
Once you show confidence and belief in what you're doing, others will start to rally around you.
Says that if you talk to any successful person, they have self-confidence and a unique point of view, not just a "milquetoast existence."
