“The meaning is not in the image. It is in the shadow of the image projected by montage onto the field of consciousness by the spectator” ~ Andre Bazin “I
put Rodin in one pocket, Michelangelo in the other and I walked toward the sun” ~ Szukalski

I am an Industrial Designer with a 10 year history in bringing internet-connected devices to the market from product planning to design-for-manufacturing.
I gravitate towards solutions that telegraph their definition and function. My goal is to
build playfulness into my work while maintaining a design intent that’s quantifiably efficient to produce.
Also, I’m always happy to just meet for a bike ride.

“The Roman consul Luscio Cornellio Silla, deeply concerned by fate, built a temple on top of a hill overlooking from away Rome. As a valiant general, he was aware of chance in battle and politics. The Temple was devoted to- Fortuna Primigenia, which means: everything came from a power which we do not know but have command of the whole.” ~ James Turrells notebook at the LACMA- fixed many grammatical errors
