I'm an oddity, and I've always had to dig a little deeper to connect with the people around me. I find what's important to them isn't all that different from myself, and others that I've met–even if it's expressed in different ways. I use this process to approach design.
This understanding to drives my design decisions to create an experience that makes sense to the user. Because of this, I have a flexible design process that allows me to adapt it to the project I'm working on.
I'm easily recognized by my blue backpack, a snapback, and a permanent tired face. The metaphorical shovel and goggles are always carried, so that I'm ready to dig around, and find connections with things and people around me.
