At the start of this year, I updated my internet bio to include Inventor of Magical Effects.

I'm at my creative best (and most prolific) when I allow myself to experiment. Framing my approach as being inventive lets me focus on trying new or random techniques without much concern for posting polished entertainment. Essentially, I can do whatever I want.
