  • Being part of a team is amazing. Just because you’re creative doesn’t mean you have to do it alone.
  • More minds are better than one 
  • Your career is about skills, not education – just get that receipt (degree). You have your whole life to figure things out 
  • You are your own definition of success
  • Get out there and do the work. That’s how you really learn. 
  • Be kind and available 
  • Don’t judge a “job” by its cover – judge it by how it feeds your soul and passion. 
  • Real-world experience always plays into your professional work. 
  • When the opportunity presents itself, get in, get messy and just fail until you get it right.
