KC: Myron, Welcome to Kreative Circle! Your childhood traces back to England where you completed your academia prior to pursuing a career in the travel industry. What type of arts and literature were you introduced to while growing up?
ME: Thank you for the opportunity to be on Kreative Circle. My first steps into creativity was as a very young lad, probably about six or seven. We were asked to design clothes for a doll or toy figure. I produced a Scottish soldier complete with kilt and boots. My teachers were so impressed they asked the local school inspector to view my work. I got top marks for that. But shortly after my results began to fall off. One morning we had an eye test and I was found to be as blind as a bat, I couldn't tell the figure of a dog from that of a cow, I was diagnosed short sighted and needed glasses. When I moved to secondary school my education was not too good, I only did well in English, Drama and Economics, I was bad at Maths and Geography, so how I became a travel agent is beyond me.
KC: How did working in the travel and airline industry influence your life outlook and creativity while nurturing your growth?
ME: When I started in travel, I worked first as a Saturday boy stamping brochures, selling Insurance policies and theater tickets. After I finished school I had a permanent job in the agency. I stayed for a couple of years before branching out to work in London. On my commutes I would often put pen to paper and write a few lines, not really thinking about doing anything with them. Of course travel broadens the mind so whilst working in airlines and tour operations I would come into contact with organisations who had various degrees of travel requirements, some of these were straightforward A-B requests, but on occasions others would be more elaborate, like a twelve or fifteen stage itinerary complete with a program of events.
