So, today is the day I brand myself. Finally, putting myself in the forefront of what I am doing and saying out loud "I am the creator of this!" For over 14 years I have been building brands, ideas, spaces, products, etc. under different names. Turtlewings, REcircle, Think with Things, etc. I do not regret one minute of those years, they have in fact led me here today. What I do look back on is how their success or failure was always on my shoulders. No matter how much I wanted to share the load with others and at certain points did a little, still in the end if I bowed down it all fell to the ground.
You can imagine how tired and even a bit shorter I have become over these years. I have never liked to sell myself and always stood behind my ideas quietly, but now I feel strong enough to step from behind my ideas and stand before them. Of course, I am stronger because all these great ideas and projects and they now have my back. I can stand tall and say "I have become an expert at linking design, creativity and education."
I have an amazing portfolio of projects behind me and a very exciting road ahead, which will inevitably not be taken alone, but I will be better at taking loads on my shoulders that I can bare alone, just in case.
This website has already been a wonderful journey to make and I hope a wonderful adventure going forward. It is exciting to merge all I have done in one place for everyone to see and imagine the new projects, discussions and partnerships that will come out of it.
Thank you all for joining me on this next adventure!
