I am a writer, artist, and designer.
I write because I need a practice to commit thoughts to paper. Writing can be one of the clearest forms of communication, an effective tool to share ideas with those who choose to listen.
I create art because I can't help myself. Years of making has revealed a style—independent of medium—that is rooted in detailed mark-making. The process is meditative and the product reveals beauty through repetition and patterns.
I design because it is social and problem-solving. I define design as a process and a product, something created with intention and an aesthetic sensitivity. While design is in the service of other people, it must carry the spark of the designer's soul and imagination.
