My Personal Philosophy of Life as a Designer...

Have fun and do good work; this is my daily goal. Always seeking out opportunities to expand my skills and knowledge, I believe if I ever stop learning, I need to stop designing. Removing my ego, being creatively brave, and putting people before projects is my recipe for success. And please don't mistake my positive demeanor for naiveté, I've got street smarts, too.

I love how it feels to add an anchor point or outline a stroke. I love offsetting paths and the smooth feel of tweaking a Bezier curve. I love the perfect gradient and loath the wrong typeface. Layers are like warm blankets to me. Blend me, drop shadow me, or drape me with a pattern overlay. I love it all.
