I like to fidget. What I once thought was a flaw in my system has now become a handy skill. My friends would always get mad at me for breaking things. But I wasn't breaking anything. I was figuring them out until they lost their ability to function anymore. These accidental destructions proved quite useful in times of later creation. I am curious how objects, environments, and experiences work.
Besides that, I'm always keen on a good story, skiing through powdery forests, and a proper scoop of ice cream at any hour.
I appreciate you taking the time to explore my work. Thank you.

1. TAHOE RAISED ME
Going outside was my only option. The trees were my friends and the snow was everything. Now I live in Seattle. It's not as warm or sunny or snowy, but the people are great so I'm happy.
2. I LIKE PEOPLE
People matter more than anything. I like to encourage them. If you are reading this, let me take a moment to say you're awesome. You're welcome here and you've got what it takes.
3. I DAYDREAM
My mind thrives in the clouds. Storms are always brewing in this brain of mine and I can't slow it down. Intergalactic ice cream trucks, time traveling skis, and a new species of toastasoarus currently fill my sketchbook.
4. I'M ALWAYS LEARNING
I'm observant. I take in information everywhere I go. Whether it's people watching on the bench outside Splash Mountain to mentally deconstructing the toaster as I spread goat cheese, we are surrounded by fascinating information that holds answers to many of life's questions.
5. I REMEMBER AND RECREATE
I hold my observations close, ready to problem solve at any moment. A good solution is just the right combination of existing ones. That's why ice cream sandwiches are so good.
6. I LOVE TACOS
Ninety percent of my nutritional pyramid is made of tacos. Breakfast tacos, dinner tacos, ice cream tacos. Holler if you want to make tacos sometime.
7. I AM A MAKER
Doesn't matter what. Sketching, sewing, building, prototyping, illustrating, welding, painting, cooking, and collaborating every step of the way. From making friends to making memories, creating things what we're made to do.
