Growing up my favorite subjects in school were Art and PE. As an adult not much has changed. I'm an athlete AND a designer who is constantly curious and asking why. I enjoy a good challenge and seem to always find the finish line whether it's a sprint or a marathon project. My most fulfilling projects have solved a real problem with sweat, tears and a thoughtful solution.
