It has been forever since I have been meaning to finally take the leap and do something that truly inspires me. Something that truly nudges that long-asleep “kid” inside of me.

Always had an appetite for everything that is “Design” but honestly — and funny enough — I never knew so! Putting a name on what drives someone is not always the best advice I can give. After all, it’s just another “box” to what you are really capable of fully being. However, in this case it was a HUGE help.

It was like that signpost that you see while walking (or that big road sign when driving), all aimed at “hinting” you to the right direction. The signposts/roadsigns themselves have utterly no value, but what it signals to you is what truly matters. Thats what it did to me, the word “Design” sparked within me the long lost road that I missed on a few years back in my life (as of end 2019, I am counting around 11+ years of my life — excluding the university years).

Anyways, this is a start of my journey to this career change. Leaving the “lesser” of myself to a FULL self.
