Ladies and Gentlemen, it is an honor. My name is Dr. Evan Taylor, and I am Fast Horse’s newest Intern of Internal Medicine.
Wait a minute, that doesn’t sound right. Why in the world would Fast Horse, a marketing agency, need a doctor?
Well, ever since I could talk, I always spoke of my dreams of becoming a physician, like my father. He always said, “Lots of work, lots of rewards.”
And thus, I entered college as the pre-med student, looking to cure cancer, or deliver a baby in a hotel lobby someday. I was a double major in biology and studio arts. While the science courses were feasible, I often was bored due to lack of stimulation. One summer, I worked as an assistant at a surgery center, believing it to be progress towards my goals in life. However, I found myself yawning under my surgical mask.
While I felt well qualified for the position, it was an ultimately left-brained job.
I started to realize I had many dreams in life. I had to sort out which dreams were unrealistic for me and “becoming a doctor” was placed in the category alongside “becoming an Olympic hurdler,” “marrying Taylor Swift,” and “becoming an X-Wing fighter pilot.” They just weren’t for me.
It was time to start chasing my dreams. After collecting awards and accolades in film competitions around the nation, selling a portrait to the Royal Court of Sweden, and being featured on ABC for one of my photographs, I took a step back and was hit with a sudden epiphany: I’m an artist.
And although I’ll never wear an Olympic medal, Taylor Swift will never become Taylor Taylor, and the Republic may be destroyed someday, my creative, right-brained positions will allow for an exciting, interactive life.
I’m excited for the work Fast Horse has to offer. “Lots of work, lots of rewards.”
