I like people. When working with clients and with co-workers I take pride in bringing everyone along. Every exchange with me is authentic.

My background in industrial design leaves no hesitation to pick up any tool to help illustrate a point. When needed I apply detail however I find a loose sketch can get a long way to tell a story.
