A little bit about myself.

Website2019CEOLaugh.png

Sharing your creative potential is what life is all about. 

 

I am fortunate to be a mix of cultures - Chinese, Japanese, Indian and British. I was born in Denver, CO, lived on a ranch in Montana for my high school years, studied university in Hawaii, worked in New York City and finally made a full circle back to Denver.

 

My interests entail anything Adobe related (besides the price), Ableton software hacks, Figma wireframes, free website builders, free online classes, Canon cameras, squirrels and Cheerios in my fruit smoothies. I am skilled in the art of learning something new.

 

As a half-schooled, half self-taught designer, I've learned a lot of the processes, concepts and theories of content and product design through attending classes, reading books, blogs and applying these to my work and projects in my free time. I am very ambitious and love working on projects from end to end, from ideation to finalization.

 

My current program knowledge resides in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, XD, Premier Pro, After Effects, Lightroom, Sketch, Draw, Google SketchUp, Ableton Live, Avid Pro Tools, Figma, CAD, Revit and Serato Software.

Passion
Everybody should have at least one thing they love to do. If you don't love doing something, move on. Life is too short to be a stone in a flowing river, Why stay still?

Learn
We are constantly working on bettering ourselves as humans and finding better ways to improve our faults and mistakes. I am always seeking new ways to surround myself around growth. I challenge myself by learning from feedback, reading, talking and sharing my vulnerabilities.

Create
Creativity is everywhere. In nature, in my coffee, everywhere. We would all go mad without it. It is the cornerstone to technology and advancing the mind. When I am not at work, I'm drawing, making music, taking pictures or shooting film to help me meditate or I'm helping someone design something for their passion!

Humility
It doesn't matter who has more money, experience or status. We are all flowing through the river of life together. So if you see a stone in the water along your journey, don't just keep going, stop and find out what is weighing it down. Take the time to pick it up, feel the textured past it has worn throughout the seasons. Each pebble, stone and boulder has come from the same origin, only the shapes and sizes vary.

Core Values

Everybody always asks me where I get my artwork and design done. I always say, "I got a guy, he's my right hand man, I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for him.
