“My goal as an artist is some sort of interaction and hopefully at least a minor legacy. Each piece I create to me is like a precious jewel. It is my wish that I will someday be able to profess the true measure of respect I feel for art in a position of proof through action rather than words.”

IN HIS OWN WORDS: I’m very silly and I have an absurd sense of humor.On the other hand, I can be very serious and rigid. These two sides which don’t get along are governed by a very indecisive personality which rarely knows what it wants. In the end you get lots of randomness and a turbulent struggle to find a sense of identity.Through design I’m able to recouncil my inner- conflict. As I experiment with different ideas, I learn to let go and figure out what I need rather than what I want. I have a very greedy soul that wants to fit everything I come up with into each design, but in the end , I learn what it means to get to the point.
VOICE: I want to be a designer whose strongest feature is wit. The designers who most inspire me are those who I consider witty and clever. Who knock you over with a bold message executed with distinct originality. I want to be someone who people count on to have a special way of approaching problems. In addition, I also like to make art for art’s sake. —– DISTINCTIVE MARKINGS: I’m attracted to lines. Different widths and thicknesses. Lines built up to create textures. I’m happy with just black and white.
