I enjoyed a long career designing experiences and products, all of which were focused on being relevant to those actually using them. 
I consider myself the editor, collector, and organizer of disparate information informing the need at hand. 
I practice with a constant pursuit and analysis of three-dimensional studies _ using hands to think, making to discover and communicate, touching as a way to understand.  
Continuous user involvement is necessary to design emotional connections that goes beyond the functional and aesthetic characteristics. ​​​​​​​
Design is a way of living.
"I started designing at a time when we thought our role in business world would be making lives better, easier, safer, more enjoyable. We were advocates for all users across a product lifecycle. Since then, it seems designers mostly want to push around the frosting on the cake as an aesthetic differentiator, pushing design ever closer to art."
