"Must is who we are, what we believe, and what we do when we are alone with our truest, most authentic self. It's that which calls to us most deeply. It's our convictions, our passions, our deepest held urges and desires -- unavoidable, undeniable, and inexplicable." -Elle Luna
I'm not just a designer from 9-5 and it ends there. My creative goals and process are a part of my every day life. I listen to music that energizes me and expands my creativity. I collect physical things that spark ideas, and I surround myself with objects that reflect my aesthetic. I read books of all kinds to gain a better understanding of the world. I am willing to talk to anyone, because I believe there is something to be learned from everyone. I observe culture and subcultures and how they are influencing design, and how design can influence them. Design has been a crucial part of our world for hundreds of years and I want to honor that through how I work and view myself as a designer.
As a human, I can't choose between the city, the mountains, and water. Wine and coffee are essential. My pug Hank, and my cat Luna are perfect. I love to collect things. Yoga is actually the best. I'm obsessed with making playlists, finding new music, and jam sessions with friends. New adventures, new hobbies, new music, new places, I love it all.
