I am a creative problem solver. I have a passion for design that shakes up the ways in which we think, create, and live. Whether I am working within fields of architecture, photography, or graphic design, my goal is always to create beautiful solutions generated from a well-understood context and a relentlessly resourceful process.
Most of my work does not sit safely within one of these categories, but rather develops as a fusion of different disciplines, ideas, and practices. I work with my clients, audience, and team in order to build projects from the ground up, and maintain conceptual simplicity by executing strong details and continually revisiting our mission.
Design has the power to change, move, and wake people. By working on projects that I see as being truly important to our world, I am able to offer all of my energy to them... and then ten times more. I try to stay curious, playful, and determined as all hell.
