I believe that a designer can change people’s lives. A product can make an everyday task easier, more comfortable, more enjoyable. By designing products that are innovative, practical, affordable, ergonomic, sustainable, and aesthetically pleasing, I aim to make even the most mundane of tasks interesting and intuitive. Above all, the product should be designed with the end-user in mind. Since graduation I have specialized in signage design and wayfinding consulting. Getting a sign system user from point A to point B with ease utilizing visually appealing and consistent queues is job that I find constantly rewarding. Photography, particularly architectural and landscape is another creative avenue I have pursued alongside my career in the graphic arts. This skill set has become especially useful in documenting projects that I have worked on.
