I feel fortunate spending my days creating things, seeing ideas realized and collaborating with interesting people.

In the most fundamental way, I love to experiment with line and color.  In a broader sense I like to explore how we express culture, what makes us different and alike.  

I think there is something interesting about people who practice a discipline.  The internal drive that gets them out of bed everyday to face what seems like a constant uphill journey, challengeing themselves to reach their next level.    It amazes me to see people achieve things they did not think possible, or better yet things no one else thought were possible.

I love humor and am always happy to see a photo of someone with their shoes on the wrong feet.

My wife and two kids are smarter than me and remind me of it every day.  It's the best.

One day, I hope to go to Antarctica...not just for a day, maybe a long weekend.
