He lives for uncertainty and adventure, and he always finds his way.

BIGGEST DESIGN INSPIRATION

I find inspiration everywhere. Books, movies, found objects, legends. I keep an open eye and an open mind and try to avoid any single style source. There’s beauty in everything. Nearly.

BEST CULT CLASSIC

Toss up between the original Vacation movie and Barry Lyndon.

I’M STILL LEARNING

To figure it all out / stop thinking so much… simultaneously.

MY IDEAL MEAL

Something drowned in, or slathered with, peanut butter or peanut sauce. Preferably with a side of sticky rice or a heel of freshly baked bread.

MY KIND OF FUN

Spontaneous road trips to destinations unknown and finding the perfect memento.
