I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
In creating new work, I consistently look to preexisting forms and structures that share a background of utility and functional design. I find clarity in tasking a seemingly simple, functional object and reconfiguring it somehow. Form, material, and process are all critical components; by engaging formal and functional issues, I create incongruous objects.
