Howdy!

Lemme Push Your Pixels

Most designers had a choice. I didn’t. I filled my school notebooks with Letraset rub-ons, drew alphabets on moleskin, and turned daydreams into logos, like “Jump-E” pajamas. The way I figure it, all the best obsessions start early and don’t quit.
Here’s my true north: it’s not beautiful unless it’s functional; and brilliant design comes from smashing inspiration and collaboration together. My career has been spent combining art, commerce, and great people to create some pretty amazing things. Want to put on your safety goggles and give it a go?

Just been doing a whole lot of, you know, talking to myself. Once in a while Buko, my dog, (actual canine) chimes in. #commaspeak

Tell Siri to "define the word 'mother'". When she asks if you want to hear a 2nd definition, respond "yes". LOL
