About Me

"parangaricutirimícuaro"

I could work you and myself into a fervor by using superfluous and grandiose terms like "Synergy", "Innovation", "Passion", "Drive" and go on and on about how "Incredibly Unique" I am. The fact of the matter is that my craft, like every other craft, exists because many other people have been doing it long before I have. I'm a living breathing part of a rich history of design that influences and informs how I make my decisions as a creative. I don't claim to be the best part of that, but ultimately, design excites me. I feel privileged to be able to do what I do, and I do it in a big way. I can draw, paint, sculpt, write, photograph, video, edit, code, speak, brainstorm, create, collect, and recontextualize like many others...but I'm a success because I care about the individual. I care about the work, and I'm here to make a difference. This is what I do, I know it will fit what you need.

It's also fun to make things look real super pretty.
