I’ve been making things as long as I can remember. Working with my hands has always given me a profound sense of freedom; allowing me to experience the world in whatever ways my mind can fathom. Design has given my hands an avenue to enact change through ink and pixels, but it’s always been so much more than that.
Good design goes unnoticed, but it always serves something more than itself. I want my work to connect the entitled to the marginalized, respected to the neglected, rich to poor, loved to unloved, humans to humans. Through intentional place-making and meaningful design, the societal walls that separate us can be replaced with unifying peace, love, and respect. Good design thinks about others first.
When I’m not sitting in front of a computer all day, I like to get outside. My dog Baloo and I enjoy the wind in our hair on car rides, hikes through the woods, and taking an occasional dip into a pristine Ozark swimming hole.
