I have been very lucky in my life to be surrounded by creative people who have taught me to use my head, hands, and heart to do and create any number of things. However, I would have to say that the best—the absolute best—thing that I was ever taught came from my dad. He taught me that knowledge is never wasted, and to love and seek knowledge in all aspects of my life. There can be no gift greater than that!
