Just a creative guy looking to get his hands dirty. Working as a designer in Oakland, CA and Charleston, SC, I get my inspiration from my surroundings. The most vital ingredients are the people I meet.
Random trivia, Pavlov's dog, awkward moments, and food.
My pirate mouth.
Do what you love, and waking up every morning gets easier.
Anyone that pursues a chosen path, in spite of their fears.
Movie trailer voice over.
Anyone's face throughout my life. (Names... forget about it).
The importance of personal time.

We should be the parents of our future, rather than the offspring of our past.
Truthfully, Connection is greater than Separation. Are you at a place where you are ready to bloom with this. Are you at a place where you are willing to risk and grow, and be even more beautiful, to realize that connection.
Separation is no longer an acceptable risk.
Take the risk of connection. Let go of the risk of separation. We need THAT.
Today and going forward, the risk of separation is so much greater than the risk of connection.
Are you separating and defending yourself, isolating yourself from feeling, from hurting? Have you kept yourself from beauty? I hope not. Because you all are the designers, the artists, the authors, the builders. I hope you take that risk to stay connected to beauty.
