"I grew up with parents who loved industrial and interior design, and I was artistically inclined. Therefore, architecture seemed like the perfect merger of all three. Early in my architecture career I became fascinated with the larger challenge of converging media, design and communications. When I discovered branding and corporate identity I immediately realized that this was where all of my interests converged. Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to work with creative experts from fields as divers as illustration and animation to aerospace physics. Each project has been unique in terms of its challenges and objectives, and equally rewarding in terms of my understanding of effective creative solutions."
