Design Beginnings

Organizing information and telling stories through concept development and illustration.

I grew up working in a machine shop and on a factory trawler. Where my appreciation for good design, team work and follow through came from.

That environment also provided the ground-spark for my interest in business and systems thinking, innovation and fabrication, appreciating constraints and understanding trends.

It also gave me an appreciation for transferable skill sets and humility. Working with accountants to legal counsel, vendors and engineers. And serviceability and human centered design.

“Did you label it port-starboard-top-bottom-left-right? Did you add NeverSeez?
Did you build it for the guys at sea? 

Did you build it for your team, because at the end of the day it’ll come home to you for servicing.”
