Life excites me. My friends describe me as vivacious, effervescent, and real. I enjoy observing the way people interact with design, especially when the design itself mimics human form. Good design evokes passionate emotion in me. I strive to make my work meaningful, inspirational and thought provoking, but I also try to create with a fresh, innovative approach that delights the eye and thrills the heart.
