WHAT IS NATURAL?
Design is a rhetorical question. As a designer, I pay attention to the visual, experiential and linguistic rhetorical devices of daily life in order to understand our mental models of experience. A breadth of experience in various design mediums helps me develop tools for brainstorming and collaboration, and to mine the collective unconscious in order to discover what we define as natural.
I create interactive experiences - encompassing print, digital and experiential projects - that provide clarity and enhance connectivity for people and their communities.
