Nothing fuels me like creativity. My driving passion is design. It's what drives to me to wake up every day at 3:30 am and rush off to my studio. I have an über rad wife and two awesome sons, all of whom keep the fire of drive burning inside. With the tremendous support of my wife keeping down the home front among a million other things, I strive and fight to make a name for myself in the world of design. Unfortunately, there are always those who don't appreciate your work. Those who don't see the value in what you can provide them. Design could unite the world if its people would let it. Some of my favorite sayings are "Design is music for your eyes", "Tools cannot replace skill" and my all time favorite, which has become my mantra, "Respect the trade."
