Design is phenomenal; building relationships and immersing yourself in—and trying to piece together—a world filled with endless information. It is an open-ended medium where I can enjoy the process and craftsmanship as much as the outcome. As a creative, I am highly process-driven. I enjoy researching the entirety of a subject and narrowing in on moments that create interesting narratives. The idea of weaving a narrative drives my conceptualization for any project.
Basically, I like to keep design interesting by conceptualizing with a twist. So that’s what I do.
