It defines my personal and professional fashion choices, as well as event set up and presentation. Those that get to know me can see how eclectic personifies itself in my life and being.

It’s what helps me to achieve my best. Simplicity is by far my go-to method for everything, specifically, in this case, my professional event goals, but that doesn’t require blandness or boredom. You want to make a statement and get your message out there.

In general, the concept of eclecticism is not to allow the rigidness of predetermined rules to take from growth, insight, and creativity. ( Reminds us of something. *cough, cough* Interdisciplinary studies.)
