Ask Me

Who are your role models or inspiring folks?

I have many role models, but mostly everyday heroes. Anyone who contributes to the betterment of humanity. 

 

Outside of art and design fields, what inspires you?

I especially find inspiration in the connections of broadly trans-disciplinary topics. Ideas that draw-from and contribute-to multiple fields, such as ‘nature’ and ‘technology’.

 

What do you wish you had known when you started out as a student/in this field?

I wish that I understood the vast diversity of opportunities that awaited me after graduation. That my formal education was just an introduction to the field.

 

What was your most memorable meal? 

A wonderful fresh seafood dinner on a white beach in the Caribbean.

 

In your office, you can only have three things, one book, one tool, and one picture. What would they be and why?

On Walden Pond, A pen, my wife.
