Question: What does Creativity mean to you?

Answer: "Creativity” means looking at the world, things, and ideas in different ways and trying to put objects and ideas together in a way that defies the ways we have seen them put together and might naturally tend to put them together.

Question: What inspired you to become a First 40 member?

Answer: What inspired me to be a part of the “First 40” is seeing how kids reacted to the program – with genuine interest and enjoyment.

Question: What is your favorite childhood toy or game?

Answer: One of my favorite games, if not favorite game, is chess. Chess involves strategy, but certainly creativity.

As a lawyer, I am always thinking about creative arguments and how to solve problems within the confines of a legal framework that doesn’t always provide clear answers.

The Child Creativity Lab recently kicked off its “First 40” Member Campaign, which is designed to reach a goal of $40,000 through the generous gift of $1,000 from 40 individuals, organizations, and businesses.

Members of this exclusive group are given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to set themselves apart from others through this important designation. In addition, once the museum is open, a unique “First 40” donor recognition piece will be highlighted to celebrate, in a tangible way, their active role in the enrichment of children, dedication to the community, and generous support of the Child Creativity Lab.
