Things I have been told, experienced, failed at, learned from, am inspired by, and hold close to my heart...

Do what has value and makes things better, otherwise why do it?

Continuous innovation requires continuous redefinition.

Immersion creates empathy.
Study life, not design.
Seek civility and grace.

Design is never neutral.

Fail early to discover what you do not know.
Don’t be afraid to ask stupid questions.
Predictability is NOT part of the design process.

Just because you can design something doesn’t mean you should.

Vision is your most sustainable advantage.

Be a story teller, and a good editor.
Work should be fun.
