Their Interviews

It wasn't enough, it is never enough I guess. While purchasing an idea of perfection which doesn't exist (I had to guess by myself) and by seeing things go in the wrong directions that sometimes, you have to find something else to chase, to view as another starting point. I left Paris to go after different feelings, I needed to feel alive again. I am always thinking about the next project, what could I do to keep my mind stimulated, becoming more aware of my surrounding, what I can do and especially by meeting creative and inspiring people from all over the world.
