Every year I try to take on at least one new creative personal project to expand my knowledge and experience in a creative area I'm less familiar with - but interested in.
I've found I've universally taken something from every experience that I use in my job as a Creative Director - or later apply to other projects down the road. The bucket list of experiences so far include writing screenplays and television pilots, doing a painting series and having a show in a gallery in New York, writing and recording music tracks, writing and directing music videos, editing a film, building websites, writing and directing a short film, playing and singing on a music track and photographing a fashion photogrpahy series.
These are a few pieces from some of those projects. There are also links above to view some of them in more depth.
