Having been brought up in the NYC Area since birth, Diversity has always been a given aspect of my life. Always learning from different sources, appreciating differing perspectives and when it matters to going out of the way and play devil's advocate to test a design concept. Mastering a command over aesthetics in determining whether a design is Neutral or having a Stylistic Slant. A Designer must be aware of all that is around them, everything that has past; then make the exacting choice(s) as someone who knows better, then perceived or projected taste is truly a choice rather than just an echo of their limited exposure to current trends.
Character is an aspect that I greatly appreciate in all things & people, whether it be Product Design, Visual Art, Architecture, Transportation, and other forms of Media. Character can be the Aesthetic, or a Philosophy on how something was created, an influenced mindset for the viewer/user, Point Of View, or on how a product positions itself in the field.
