Right now you're
and this would be epic instead:
After being burnt-out, bored, bottled up and burdened by 7 years of doing what I thought I "should" in a solid, stable advertising career, I felt my creative Self (who I'd shushed and squashed for having no damn place in success) tapping on the window of my mind. But I was too doubtful and cynical to do anything about it. My inner critic wasn't just along for the ride, she was behind the wheel, dodging traffic and chucking u-turns. As I approached 30, I quit that career and reclaimed the driver's seat to go find the spark I’d lost along the road. Since then I’ve learnt to regard my creativity as a need not a want, and redefine art not as a luxury but as a legitimate source of well-being. Through exploring your creative impulse you explore your human experience which can only lead to growth. Read more about me here.
As your mentor, I'm here to support you using your creative impulses as a guide. I want to see you regard creative gifts as the magic that they are, and back yourself, free of others' expectation or fear of fucking up. I want to witness you play, become lighter, and see yourself as a force of creation.
I felt stuck in my creative outlet - fear of failing, rejection and inability to trust myself to follow through on my own goals. Now my mindset has changed - the fear has changed to curiosity and boldness give things a go. Kris taught me how to be kind to myself and to be more self aware. To see my shortcomings and fear as an opportunity to explore and look at it in the face. My parents and friends see a huge difference in me - how I approach work, life and my own design work.

"I felt like my coaching experience with Kris was like rock-climbing.
Sometimes you reach a point where you get stuck.
You can’t see the next foothold.
And you get tired.
Sometimes all you need is someone to tell you that there’s a foothold next to your knee. That you can reach it. That your legs are strong enough to push you up. To take a deep breath and reach. That there is a harness there, too. Sometimes you need a good belay partner. That’s what working with Kris felt like. Kris brought the space for me to find my line - pursuing my identity as a creative writer, the perspective to see what I couldn’t, suggestions for what footholds to try next, and an encouraging word and a safety net for when I got tired or afraid. And - sometimes - when you’re focused on the journey, you look down from the top, and surprise even yourself with how far you’ve come."
You are the type of person who is deeply passionate, curious, and sincerely committed to leaving self-doubt at the door. You have to WANT to put in the work, even when it’s uncomfortable, and be willing to explore the possibilities that may come with thinking differently.
