Creative Professional

Some people think outside of the box, yet they fail to exit it in the exploration of those ideas to their fullest potential. There are others who remain perfectly content inside of that box; after all, it IS familiar. They are like cattle who graze pastures in order to sustain their masters by remaining a consistent source of milk for as long as they are able to produce it. When that's over, they turn into dollar menu burgers in fast-food drive-thrus.

Rare are those who not only think outside of the box and dare to trek into unmapped terrain that may prove to be either rewarding or dangerous. These individuals are the visionaries whose thoughts are proceeded by their actions. They not only sustain existing fields, but plant new and exotic seeds to sustain and expand the industry in which they are the creative force.

These seers appear unconventional yet are versatile enough to function within conventional frameworks...They are innovative leaders who understand the importance of being a team player...

Trendsetting trendspotters who know how to be seen and keep their ears open at the same time...

the Creative minds of our era who now present their newest addition
