Personal insight through careful consideration of the essence of a design problem to be solved is critical to developing meaningful visual solutions.
Research, design thinking, and my personal problem-solving methodology are constantly assessed to address their viability and effectiveness.

I hope always to find a solution that reaches the essential core and purpose and employs simplicity in the final form. A quote by Charles and Ray Eames… “The details are not the details. They make the design” has encouraged me to understand the macro and the micro of what I attempt to develop as an artist and designer.

As I experience design and art created by colleagues worldwide, it is clear that we are unique individuals with rich pasts that inform our art and design solutions. Visual Communication Design is a language that helps us connect with the international community. As someone fortunate to be immersed in the creative arts, I hope to contribute to the advancement of ideas and the positive nature of our world
