Date, by Ian Kalman

Biz International, by Duncan Reddington

The Prison Of The Mind, by Kamal Karimullah
'The brain is the most powerful device to ever exist.
What do we do when we're conflicted?
Do we make irrational choices?
Or do we seek for clarity?
Have control over your mind...or it could end up imprisoning you.'
