I’M A DESIGNER AND I DO DESIGN, DIRECTION AND PROGRAMMING FOR INTERACTIVE MEDIA, OBJECTS, INSTALLATIONS AND SPACES.


I'VE LIVED AND WORKED IN DFW, LA, NYC, MILAN, LONDON AND AMSTERDAM DOING DESIGN AND PROGRAMMING RELATED PROJECTS. I LIKE TO TRAVEL TO MEET DIFFERENT PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT CULTURES AND KNOW HOW THEY THINK.


I'VE WORKED IN MANY GROUPS OF MULTICULTURAL DESIGNERS FROM EASTERN EUROPE, ASIA, THE MIDDLE EAST AND AUSTRALIA. WE ALL THOUGHT USING MANY CONTEXTS FROM DIFFERENT CULTURES BUT SOMEHOW CAME TO MAKE ONE PROJECT.


FROM THE PEOPLE I'VE MET EVERYWHERE I'VE BECOME MORE AND MORE OF A DESIGN THINKER; DESIGNING PROJECTS WHICH I THINK HAVE MORE VALUE FOR WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD TODAY.


I WORK IN BETWEEN PHYSICAL (OBJECTS, INSTALLATIONS, AND SPACE) AND VIRTUAL (MEDIA AND THE WEB) USING MANY DIFFERENT MEDIUMS AND TECHNOLOGIES IN CONTEXT TO WHAT NEEDS TO BE COMMUNICATED.


KNOWING HOW TECHNOLOGY FUNCTIONS LETS ME DESIGN OUTSIDE OF "WHAT CAN OR CANT BE DONE" AND "WHAT IS THE NEWEST AND GREATEST TECHNOLOGY". I COULD DESIGN SOMETHING AND THEN DIRECT HOW IT CAN BE COMMUNICATED TO PEOPLE OR VICE VERSA.


I THINK DESIGN IS A SOLUTION AND TECHNOLOGY IS A TOOL; USING THIS THOUGHT I QUESTION THE EFFORT AND EFFECT OF DIFFERENT SOLUTIONS TO SEE WHAT IS BEST FOR EACH PROJECT.


FOR EACH PROJECT I'VE USED DIFFERENT PROCESSES TO COME TO THE BEST SOLUTION. I DON'T HAVE A SINGLE DESIGN PROCESS OR PRINCIPLE; I THINK THEY SHOULD ALL BE USED AS TOOLS TO THINK OF SOLUTIONS.


IN THE PROJECTS I'VE DONE I'VE USED PRINCIPLES FROM GRAPHIC DESIGN, INTERACTION DESIGN, PRODUCT DESIGN, CRITICAL DESIGN, AFFIR MATIVE DESIGN AND SLOW DESIGN. I WANT TO DESIGN EXPERIENCES WHICH REVEAL, EXPAND, REFLECT, ENGAGE, AND EVOLVE SOMETHING IN PEOPLES LIVES.
