Growing up, I straddled two realms: on one hand, I was a scrappy punk kid with a DIY mentality; on the other, I was an early adopter of the internet, and understood the opportunities these new technologies presented. Today, I’m fortunate to be able to bring both these elements of my personality together through my work, always in new and innovative ways.
Working on projects with real impact and longevity has been an important focus of my personal practice. I strongly believe in the positivity of change and progress, and continuously challenge myself to improve not only my own work, but the industry at large, when and where I can. Part of this quest for improvement is realized in the adoption of new tools, new environments, and new ideas—and part of it comes down to simply accepting that I am an individual with privilege, who can use their platform to bolster others. We should all strive to be champions for kinder design.
