What do you love most about design?
Design is really psychology in action. You can learn so much about how people think and interact by watching how they engage with something you've designed. It's amazing how you can use design as a force for good to get people to do things. Just think of all the incredible innovations of the past 20+ years that have spawned from great design.
What’s your favorite local meal?
I love sushi, and I love burritos. For a while there I was on a big kick of Sushi Burritos. What's not to love!? Living in San Diego (and therefore so close to Mexico) we have some truly amazing Mexican cuisine here.
What's your favorite place to travel to & why?
Such an impossible question as there are so many favorites. If I have to choose: I absolutely love Thailand. They have an incredible culture; the people are so friendly and kind, the food is to die for, and the beaches are amazing. Also, my wife is Thai American and we had a traditional Thai wedding, so I'm biased.
What’s your secret power?
The ability to distill big complex problems into bite-sized pieces. The ability to connect people, resources, and tools to get just about anything done. (Also, I'm secretly really good at DDR- Dance Dance Revolution 😂)
Are you team coffee or tea?
Tea! I go through phases but currently team tea all the way.
Where do you find the best inspiration?
Traveling, exploring new cultures, trying new things & seeing the world from a different perspective. I find that being on an airplane helps give that 30,000 ft view of your life both figuratively and literally. There's magic to being in the air and having time to think away from distractions. (I miss airplanes/traveling!)
