I fancy myself a man of many tastes. I started my career doing ol’ fashioned hand-drawn animation(the way Pa used to do it) and have worked in film, marketing, games and toy manufacturing/design. I think thoughtful design is driven by a process of inquiry that can be applied to any field. I see drawing and visual art as just one expression of that process and am fascinated by problem solving in any medium.
