Design can unite members of the community who often do not communicate with one another and can create solutions to social problems. I believe that products and solutions created by active, engaged members of the community will be wanted and used--a result of the empowering ownership that occurs in the interactive process. I have always sought to engage the viewer in a discussion on social issues. My portfolio of work centers on the human condition provoking the audience to face both the beauty of humanity and its ability to cause struggle. I believe design can be functional and create beautiful experiences that improve and enhance people’s lives. My goal is to create design and art experiences that will change the way people think, raise awareness, and assist those in need. I have explored creating innovative and exciting user-centered design experiences, methods, and strategies that involve user interface, user experience, and fine art.
