Philosophy

Design without strategy is art. Strategy without design is a botched job. Beginning with good strategy and executing with good design gives your project a fighting chance.

And I’m a fighter.

I constantly question and refine the intention behind each decision to create functional and beautiful brand experiences.

Interests

Interests

I’m an inherently curious person with interests in interior design, architecture, urban planning, and music. I’m constantly trying to learn new things that I find interesting and help enrich my life. Since early 2018, I’ve been practicing my skills to become a DJ in my spare time. Mixing the latest underground House and Techno tracks infused with classics that everyone knows and loves.

My passion for learning is fuelled by trying to be the best I can possibly be. That probably comes from my background in sports, where I played upwards of eight high-level sports at any given time. Including golf, badminton, volleyball, and even dodgeball. Lately, my competitive nature has turned to esports where I’ve competed in Halo 5: Guardians and Call of Duty tournaments with a few wins under my belt.

At this very moment, I’m trying to learn more about unique small-scale creative businesses and taking steps to launch my first Kickstarter campaign later this year.
