I love stories and I love to tell them! Design is visual storytelling! The allure of a great story is ancient and subconscious -- one of the most intimate and innate ways that we relate to the world around us. So the goal of visual communication should always be the reinforcement of genuine connections between humanity and our environment.

My childhood is the source of my inspiration, the most wondrous and vulnerable period of my life. Nostalgia is a powerful emotion. So I try to employ, in both abstract and playful ways, universally relatable ideas, colors, shapes, and other core elements that represent who we are as human animals.

I think storytellers like Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, A. A. Milne, Lewis Carol, Hans Christian Andersen, and J. M. Barrie, had an intimate understanding of the way a child’s mind functions. I try to channel that in my work — to create something unique, expressive and personal to communicate meaningful messages and elicit deep visceral emotion.
