When I was a kid, everybody knew I was creative, but nobody seemed to know where I belonged. When I saw something new, I had to know how it worked. If there was a tool I could use to make something, I had to learn how to use it. If there was something in my head, I had to get it out into the real world. People said I was "artistic," but that didn't seem to fit. Then, one day, I learned a new word. It turned out I always knew what I wanted to do. I just didn't know it was called design. Some people will tell you to follow your dreams. I say follow your obsessions. I'm a designer. I make things. It's what I love to do.
