Large amounts of self-motivation.

Has your career been planned or a function of serendipity?

An equal function of both but mostly hard work and consistency.

To inspire me and show me a fresh perspective. 

What advice would you give to your 18-year-old self?  

I would ask myself to put faith in time and the process of achieving something. Each step is as, in fact much more important than the prize.
