best design tip:

Create memorable spaces, give your concept a name, tell a story - constraints inform the design, limitations encourage creativity, every detail is worth discovering, no detail is too small.

favorite pattern:

Patterns from nature – concentric webs, dried mud, faceted bubbles, hexagonal beehives, leaf skeletons + sand ripples

best advice:

Hard work pays off – diligence, passion, and vigor create strong results.

hidden talent:

Alchemist, inventor + diplomat
