Profiles in Art: Yaakov Bressler "The Golden Smile"

Profiles in Art: Yaakov Bressler "The Golden Smile"

Yaakov Bressler is a Chemistry major, medical school applicant, and former medical researcher.  But he discovered his true profession early on - as a playwright.  He says even while pursing his science major, he was always writing.  He is taking the time now to see how far it will take him. Yaakov is a talented artist (the profile icon of Face I and Face II are his works as well) who is following a dream, and determining if he chose it, or it chose him.
