            In college I was almost an art major, almost a sociology major, and just this-close to a degree in media studies. More accurately I majored in sticking to the things that made me tick, which I eventually came to call Sustainable Design in Society.

            And that is about what I aim to do. I love stuff. I have piles of tools and doo-dads for making this and that stored in enough nooks and crannies of my parents’ house to make their faces red. However, I also loathe things-I am often deeply upset by the amount of things in the world not worth saving that people none the less find reason to buy. So my goal is to understand the sociological aspects of consumerism, and constantly better my skills of industrial design in order to create work that is attractive, yet also has a clearly defined function and well thought out life cycle.

           When not scratching my head over design, I make photographs and video about the places and people I most admire and find interesting. I can often be found spending a more than healthy amount of time outdoors in the surf, and on my bike pedaling towards an imaginary and elusive sweat infused Shangri-La.

I most appreciate your interest in my work, and hope you’ll pedal with me.
