A passion for design quickly evolved into an obsession for solving problems.
Growing up I was drawn to eye-pleasing design. After receiving a Bachelors degree in graphic design, I realized my obsession was with the way my designs answered questions, specifically the "how?". How to fix the problem? How can the design encourage the user? How will the user react?
