A constant consumer of knowledge and experience and occasional purveyor of wisdom. I eat, sleep, and breath design and quite often find myself waking up after a heated dream about fonts and layouts. I am also an avid outdoorsman and there is nowhere I would rather be than somewhere in the mountains camping, hiking, snowboarding, or anything active and fun. I spend a great deal of my freetime driving in my truck getting myself intentionally lost just to enjoy the experience and to learn something new.
I am a strong believer in being diverse and knowing a variety of different skills, as such I find myself learning a new skill or technique for something daily. This helps me to be a very good problem solver and I pride myself highly on being able to overcome any problem thrown my way. I am also able to use my experiences to give me a different perspective than that of many of my peers. This often allows me to come to a unique and strong solution to problems. When design is involved (and it usually is) I also find that these experiences help me to “cut-the-fat,” if you will, and come to a simple solution that fits the mood and needs of the project perfectly.
