I kept coming back to DI in those early years because it was a place where I could experiment, fail, experiment, fail, and then finally, hopefully, cross your fingers, succeed. Today, failure is given this bad wrap: It’s if you mess up, it’s over. Done. Time to move on. Failure, however, is a very important part of the creative process.

DI is this amazing organization that rewards those risks and failures.
