One potato, too: my observations on imagination and creativity.
How would I describe myself? Intelligent, funny, a good and loyal friend (I sound like someone's pet!) I'm a university graduate whose life and career have followed quite a winding path. I work for myself as an art director providing branding solutions to small businesses, individuals and community groups. I am Canadian - thus, suitably polite, eh? - and I live in Central Ontario.
One of my favourite past times is roaming through art galleries and museums. Some of my most memorable visits have been to the British Museum, the Tate Modern, the Centre Georges Pompidou, the National Gallery of Canada and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Oh, and I am a formerly obese person who shed 60 lbs. in 2010 and have kept it off for over a year. Ask me how CrossFit helped me transform my life.
