Astrophysicist, Cameron Hummels discusses his greatest creative success and greatest creative failure.
After gaining recognition for his musical talents, Lee Duck dropped out of college, signed with an agent, and began touring with his band full time. At just nineteen years old, he never imagined gaining any level of fame from music and gave even less thought to concert lighting. Dissatisfied with the lighting options that were available to a band on a shoestring budget, he took it upon himself to learn about and design lighting for his own band, drastically changing the trajectory of his career.
Screenprinter and illustrator, Dave Kloc, discusses his biggest failure, what he learned from it and his greatest success.

As a scientist studying structures that are billions of years old Cameron is consistently humbled by his place in history and hopes to make a worthwhile contribution to humanity’s understanding of nature and the universe.

Caryl Smith Gilbert, USC Track & Field
As a former elite sprinter with a Type A personality, coaching didn't initially come easy to USC Director of Track and Field, Caryl Smith Gilbert. She had to learn that while competing requires a somewhat selfish, inward, singular focus, coaching is just the opposite. It demands altruism and self-sacrifice so others may achieve their personal goals. Coach Gilbert's creativity lies in the design of her team; assembling athletes she can mold and motivate to triumph both on the track and in classroom, while ushering them into adulthood with the promise of success well beyond their years as USC student athletes.
