The status quo is an unacceptable standard when it comes to creation in both the artistic and biological form. There is always something greater out there – your job is to prove that.
Whether it is a void or an abundance of boundaries, there is always an opportunity to utilize your surroundings to achieve something special. Bryant Chase is a media creator/producer with a background in clinical psychological research, and a passion for learning.
