Design for me is nothing less than creating the culture of our time… One full of beauty, joy, and meaning. It is never what you expect, but always what you can imagine, and what we create together. I work across platforms from architecture, to transportation to furniture because purposeful, insightful design can be imagined anywhere. I see life as an interconnected, seamless experience that begs to be looked at differently.
