I studied fashion business at Tobe Coburn School for Fashion Careers. I did some modelling in New York while I studied acting. At 23 I attended Muskingum University and majored in Communications with a philosophy minor. My creativity was more on the writing side. My visual arts interest came from my necktie collection and wardrobe. I've only been doing graphic arts for a year. I'm also writing 3 children's stories and a "rap opera", a theatrical play written rhyme that was inspired by Tupac Shakur remix music. I'm kind of a lost soul with the heart of an artist
Our readers would love to get to know you more Jaguar. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you, your brand or the services you offer?
I'm passionate and put my heart and soul into what I do. My pursuit is to exceed expectations. I believe a person doesn't live by their reputation, but I have to prove myself every day.
Jaguar, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Others?
My passion began with writing. Creating graphics came later in life and was based on a simple idea. However, the original idea I found to be boring, and I wanted to create graphics that were unique and didn't look like everyone else. So I did some photography, then realised I could create, no rules, create
Who is your inspiration in life Jaguar? How do you stay inspired as Others?
I haven't had much inspiration. Tupac Shakur inspired my current writing project, but the story formed out of rhyme. Artistically there hasn't been much inspiration. I feel as an artist I try to keep evolving.
We all make mistakes Jaguar; we wish we could take back. What was the error you made in the past that you want to you can bring back?
I wish I weren't so trusting. It seems to be a common theme.
Jaguar, How do you describe yourself regarding working with clients?
Intuitive, open-minded and I don't fall in love with my ideas.
Please tell us Jaguar, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?
Gale Sayers in the book I Am Third if I remember it correctly

My family and friends are 2nd
I am Third
- I've always considered myself a hard worker. I'm motivated more by exceeding expectations than money. Integrity, kindness and compassion don't have price tags
Jaguar, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
When I was in my 20s, I worked as a freelance image consultant. I called it Imagemaker - "your image is my creation" I worked with people that had much money. Executives in all industries from entertainment to corporations. "If you aren't going to listen to me, then you don't need me". Convincing people to make subtle changes from their comfort level requires skill and being tactful. My goal was to get clients to see themselves as a brand. The style is a lifestyle. It's more than a suit, but the glasses you wear, the colours you choose. My goal was to consult people, but in the end, convince them, it's not always what you wear, but how you wear it. Understanding peoples egos, listening to their needs and convincing them they needed my expertise.
Jaguar, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Others.
When I was running a transportation company in the last year, I had five meetings with potential clients and landed all 5
Jaguar, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or challenging about it?
Writing in rhyme and experiencing stories like a blank canvas, then incorporating myself into the work can be difficult, but as I've learned to be patient, creativity is challenging because it can't be forced and you have to search for a balance. Sometimes think creativity is a blessing and a curse. Not in a negative way.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Others?*
Find something you are passionate about. People that are passionate have a different demeanour
