It began out of desperation to be noticed apart from my brothers, then as a diversion from my academic inadequacies in school (I was ecstatic to get a D- because it meant I passed). In fact I did so poorly in school I was placed in a "special class" called "guidance" but my creative skills excelled and I noticed at an early age my "non conformity" drew the attention of the media. Building a snowman was the norm for most children during snow days, but building the Statue of Liberty out of snow meant getting my picture in the paper. From there it snowballed (pardon the pun), I liked being the "star", if for no other reason, it out shown my embarrassing inabilities to learn the ways of the structured education curriculum of the day.
