Area of interest: illustration, editorial, research, photojournalism, California condors and 5437 other things
Future/ideal work: freelance illustration, making the big bucks and living above 7000ft ASL
Why design? passion and curiosity
Goals in 5 years: see above, rubric "ideal work"
Inspirations: Cave painters. Their use of shapes, textures, relief and surfaces is still blowing my mind. Warhol does not. And I am a lifelong fan of Francis Cabrel, a French folk singer songwriter. You gotta get what he says, he is crafting every word.
Hobbies: Anything where my tech toys are turned off is a true bliss.
Favourites: I love Istanbul, Sarajevo and Tbilisi, Spanish guitar and horses, Central Asian and Peruvian Art, and a lot of other stuff. Nothing like a good local cheese and some cured sausage above the clouds in the Alps. I've tried Wisconsin cheese in the Rockies, it doesn't do it (the cheese, not the Rockies).Design items u cannot live without: PS, InDesign and AI for the tech part, a sketchbook and a camera with various lenses, expresso or black tea, Tylenol. Now that I get older, better not forget my prescription glasses as well.
