How did you get into design?

Was always interested in drawing/creating/making things as a kid. Who knew you could do this as a job?

Favorite tool?

A knife. Good for cutting food, carving wood, and basic survival.

Best lifehack?

Keep snacks in your glove compartment. Kids are not the only ones who get hangry.

If you weren't designing, what would you be doing?

Perhaps something revolving around teaching kids.

Favorite place to visit?

Sedona, AZ, in the winter

Favorite hotkey?

⌘ control shift 4

Advice for ambitious designers?

Your work ethic and portfolio speak louder than the name of your alma mater.

Last book you read?

How to American

Most effective productivity booster?

A to-do list, deadlines, music.

What keeps you up at night?

All the things I need to do the next day, the things I need to remember to do, and things that I have no control over.
