Music, design, food – any creative endeavor – are my passions. A fondness for things that exist off the collective radar, the strangely beautiful wonders that go largely unnoticed, lives deep within me. I believe in design that doesn’t violate the laws of common sense and is easy to use. Even more importantly, I view well designed and executed objects as vehicles for improving the lives of everyone on Earth.
Interconnected, thriving communities will be essential to mankind’s continued survival. The importance of understanding this planet and its living systems, along with our symbiosis with it, is the message that I wish to communicate to you, and the rest of the world.
What I Do
Coffee-slinger is my stated profession, but I live every day as a creative entity. I walk the earth as time flows onward, attempting to live my life as artfully and decently as possible. Sometimes it is difficult, but mostly it is fun, as life should be. I scuplt, paint, draw, photograph, act, engineer, help, imagine, build, dismantle, create, destroy.
I live and breathe and eat and love and cry and laugh just like you do.
I am human.
