The basic human needs of tools and shelter drive me towards design. I continue to learn what is important and necessary. I want to design space and objects that support wellness, security, innovation, and growth as a society. We can learn a lot from the natural systems around us that cultivate life. I think that nature is a valuable resource that can deeply influence design. The diversity, resiliency, and adaptation of nature can be translated into many design solutions. In an evolving world design should stand the test of time.
