I have only ever had one goal … to help people examine their world differently.
This can take many forms. Sometimes it is offering up images showing a familiar world in a different light. It can be the written word summarizing different points of view in a relatable way. In my professional life it means helping businesses make better decisions about the technology they buy and use, and sometimes helping to build those new solutions.
Really it is about making it safer to examine and question new ideas from the outside world and old self-identities from deep inside. Myopia, fear, limiting self-beliefs … all of these stand in the way of the good, wonder and progress available. If I can help people move past those limitations, it is a job well done.
I have worked in the communications and design space for almost 15 years in graphic design, identity and brand building, web design, mobile interface design and more. I have worked at all levels from lowly design serf to communications director, and more recently, owning my own web and mobile solutions company.
On the side I take photos, write when I can and play outdoors if at all possible.
