“Corporate art can be very boring, because there’s a perceived expectation of what corporations want, which can be interpreted as sterile or somber. So, don't give us what you think we want. Don't give us stock photos. Be real. Be bold. Be honest. Challenge our expectations.”

Molded me into the person I want to be
And the greater idea is that my life has just begun
And my train ride ain’t over yet.”
