I develop digital and physical solutions; translating problems, questions, and curiosities into spaces, objects, and visual and tactile experiences. Simplicity, integrated design and parametric systems are important to my process.
Making is a critical component of my creative process. While I seek to master the digital and drawn technique, I also attempt to design for the translation between virtual and real.
Right now, I work mostly with Rhino/Grasshopper, Revit, Processing, Adobe Creative Suite, various rendering software, as well as a myriad of web design/development tools. I'm always trying to pick up new skills and link tools to form new workflows.
I try to go into projects without considering the technologies I use; tech-agnostic. Being captive to a technology limits your options. I like to look outside of my usual methods and knowledge-base. There's always something new to learn; learning it and using it opens up grounds for unique and innovative solutions.
My best work has been done in collaboration with talented people and teams. Other designers, engineers, programmers, artists allow me expand my processes and achieve new and unexpected outcomes.
I work with many open source tools, so I am always building from an enormous aggregation of effort and creativity. In collaborating with others I find creative impetus, insight into worlds unknown to me, and sharing the joy of creating while solving problems.
