A geek with way too many hobbies

I have an obsession with learning as much as I can about whatever currently piques my interest, that is of course until something else comes along. Such things in the past have included photography, building an arcade stick, recording music, origami, MBTI, cosmology, astronomy, 3D modeling, animation, and of course design.

Design is one of the few things in life that has consistently held my interest and it has been just so for the past six years. When it comes to design, for me the journey is more exciting than the finished product itself. The journey is where I learn what does and does not work, and most importantly, why it does not work. From learning new techniques, taking note of promising unused ideas, and discovering solutions to past and potential future issues, this immersive process is where I believe I truly grow as a designer.
