Design is more than just a problem-solving process, it is a vehicle for innovative thinking. The tension between seeking the extremities of change and the satisfying practical needs of a project makes for my best work. Likewise I am seeking a position in a studio that places an emphasis on trend-setting, creating high design standards for the public, and engaging in diverse projects that strain our skill sets and encourage us to grow.
