My success as a design professional is driven by my deep appreciation of good design and the design process, and by creating relationships that foster collaboration, exploration, and ultimately refinement. I am adept working with small companies, non-profit causes, and enterprises.
I prefer to work with collaborators or partners. Working together to understand the problems and to challenge existing assumptions creates a dialog and openess to see anew, which then allows designs to be edited and transformed into simple ideas for people to understand and interact with.
Ideas that inspire me every day:
- Understanding leads to innovation
- Editing makes good design
- Collaboration helps you see new possibilities
