America was my dream since I was 13 and discovered it through James Dean in communist Romania. I am a huge James Dean fan, I relate to him so much! I felt that this is my real home. I was stuck there and in Canada and I only moved there to be closer to my home.

Wow, so you are multitalented person. Where did you start working as a designer for the first time?
