Design should be quality.
I believe that quality is when the detailed elements of the creation fit together seamlessly as a polished whole. I strive to not only create a quality form, but to create a quality ecosystem; a quality ecosystem of ideas, relationships, structure, sequence and language. This quality should be reflected in the way it enlivens and empowers all kinds of people. I believe that looking at any design problem without considering the intricacies of its effects and connections considerably lessens the designs impact.
I bring this philosophy into my professional design work. From visual interaction design to system modeling to storytelling, I will constantly seek to provide a high level of craft and quality. Professionally I have worked on projects for large companies like Amazon, CNN Digital, Patagonia and Visa and startups like Zite, BryteBytes and Phytel. Currently I am working as a freelancer for a few startups and focusing on my thesis work.
I grew up in the lush countryside of the the South of England, spent my early teenage years in the Blue Ridge Mountains and since my mid-teenage years I have been in Berkeley and Oakland, CA. I currently attend California College of the Arts where I am studying Interaction Design.
In my spare time you will find me biking around the Bay Area, reading, working on personal projects, juggling, dancing, working with various non-profits and traveling to visit my spread out family and friends.
