I blog about my design work, share tips & personal experiences!
I like to make things. Throughout my life, I’ve been drawn to different activities that involve creating something—so it’s no surprise I ended up choosing a design career.

Raise your hand if you need a break! The life of a solopreneur is usually a busy one. On days when I need to take a quick timeout, I turn to my books—audiobooks, that is. Listening to a great story never fails to relax, inspire and refuel me. What about you? What do...
