I’ve never been a person of many words. I don’t believe that being quiet is an impediment to observation or expression. Rather, my silence helps me perceive things more clearly and profoundly. A strong understanding of all the facets of a concept is the foundation for my creativity. The interaction between cultures, humanity, technology, urban landscapes, and the natural world are the arena for my design process, wherein I move between the realms of print, digital media, and the environment, using all of my senses to think and connect with people in order to tell a story. Design is about curiosity, storytelling, and truth. I am a feeler, a thinker, and a creator.
