I look at design as a tool of communication. Sounds cheesy, I know, but that is in fact what I believe after working as a designer for 10 years (and counting). I enjoy problem solving, putting together puzzles of information and filtering through countless facts to get to the core. These skills, when brought together, have helped me become very successful in what I do. I live to organize, categorize and get the right message through. I like to believe that I had these skills before studying design, but I am the first to admit that my education opened the world to me. So go ahead—challenge me.
