My Short Story:
Oregonian born and raised. I have traveled all over the US in a car. I have worked maintenance at a theme park, scraped rust off of roller coasters, emptied garbage cans on the beach, slept homeless in Southern California, cleaned dishes at a college biology lab, and worked as a graphic designer. You can guess what job I want to continue.
Good design starts with good ideas. Good ideas come from living research; talk, think, ponder, live.
Ideas grow ideas. Exhausting the possibilities leaves less chance for error, and a deeper story.
Manifesting digital goods is alot like finishing a house, except alot safer than hanging siding.
