Ratings and Reviews

Robin Spencer

I really enjoyed this interview, Mecca is very successful and does beautiful work. Check out her website for some real inspiration, also checkout her fees, that's a real eye opener and nice to see. Many of the free videos Creative Live offers are not great but this one is well worth your time. Can I make the suggestion that Kenna needs a better webcam the audio and picture quality is not great and a little distracting.
