WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL INSPIRED?
I am inspired by visiting museums; admiring and analyzing the works of past and present designers and artists.
IF THERE WERE NO BARRIERS OR CONSTRAINTS, WHAT PROJECT WOULD YOU WANT TO WORK ON?
My dream project would be one that impacts the viewer’s perception of a subject. I hope to create designs that inspire people, whether it is seen by a small few or a large group.
WHAT ARE YOU READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING?
Some of my current favorites are listening to Taylor Swift’s re-recorded albums, watching West Wing and Gilmore Girls, and reading my latest find from a local bookstore.
