I spent my childhood moving every year or two. Aside from the periodic social life restart, I really enjoyed all of the new places, people and experiences. Every move was also another chance to reinvent myself. I formed ideas in my head of what the perfect person would be like and how I could become that person. I wanted to know the right things to do, the right goals to pursue, and the right way to live.
This never worked. My truths and ideals were constantly challenged and changed. It took years until I slowly began to realize that the correct way is different in every situation, and the key to discovery is in the present.
Design is the same way. There isn’t a right way to design, minimal isn’t always good, and the problem is never what I expect it to be. Reality is richer and deeper than the presumptions we form. The right design comes from understanding the intricacy of peoples' lives and the context they live in. In Design, I was able to find the same beautiful complexity and I strive to create objects and experiences that fits seamlessly into them.
