About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To take it all in!

ABOUT ME

Its not the destination, or the journey but the impulse toward discovery :D Currently I transitioning to the Austin lifestyle after traipsing around the west coast :) and a three year stint in the crazy hustle bustle nonsense that is NYC.

A philosophy I just discovered while on the road and hope to practice. "Keep your heart free from hate; Your mind from worry; Live simply; Expect little; Give MUCH."

"Designers are a passionate lot. We draw on deep, inner wells of creative energy and maintain a sort of naive optimism that our creative energy can not only put food on the table, but also solve the world's problems. But left unchanneled can lead to burnout." :/

"Wrestling with the same old themes of LOVE, FREEDOM & FEAR."

â

PHILOSOPHY

"Sometimes I believe in fate, but the chances we create, always seem to ring more true." - so make them happen

But most important of all is the fact that we must, imperatively, change our attitudes and agree to live modestly and realistically—all for the sake of the future—which is not ours but which we have borrowed from future generations."

Crossed a shimmering bioluminescent bay at nightfall in Vieques, PR in a CLEAR canyon experiencing all its glittery glory! One of the most spectacular natural phenomenons I've ever seen!
