I look at the world of technology as being comprised of three things: art, science and business.  I started from the art perspective at a young age as it seemed more of a natural starting point. As I progress as a designer, I keep myself open to new design ideas and emerging technological advancements. Technology is an ever evolving field and art will always be entering or leaving a particular renaissance only to repeat itself. Art emulates a cycle whereas technology follows a linear path. I feel these factors prove how important is it to stay relevant to the current world when implementing a design while paying homage to the past. It is effective to reference the past when implementing new techniques as it gives intuition to the user.

My objective when it comes to design is to make an interface or experience that is intuitive to the user and communicates information to them in a straightforward manner that is also visually appealing. I've accumulated years of professional experience focused on user-facing design and development.

My whole appreciation for art & design started when I was about five years old. Drawing was my hobby and overtime my appreciation for art & design transitioned more to the technical side. As my skills have drifted more to digital design, I still apply the same fundamentals I learned from hand sketching to current graphic designs.
