"A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one." 
Never have I been a Jack nor am I even close to being a master, but realizing the existence of the second half of this saying has offered me the solace needed to become a hybrid creative in this day and age. I see every art and design discipline as a means to problem-solve, whether it is for self-inflicted predicament or collective imbroglio of society. Thus the only certainty in my objective is to produce engaging visual experiences, regardless of format, that will not generate further noise to an already saturated world.   ​​​​​​​
