Statement:  “After many years of formal education and creative productivity, my personal artistic vision has come to strongly embrace the combination of spiritual and physical elements…the mind-body connection. I’m interested in emotional intelligence, genetic engineering, medical and spiritual healing. I’m intrigued by the exploration of multiple dimensions; uncovering our blind spots as we evolve to a higher state of being, so we don’t have to repeat our past mistakes. I believe this vision is reflected in the way we collaborate in our work. I think it shows through the in-depth concept explorations we do, as well as in our final execution. I think that is why the media has been so interested in us. We are grateful to have earned public respect in so many cities. I believe that we are giving something hopeful and energizing back, as we explore the lives of heroic figures and hold up parts of their human and soulful experience that can inspire others.”
