Honored to have contributed a piece to @offfest 19th book, entitled “Totem”. A Totem is an object of power, it’s that thing that works as fuel and inspiration for creators. Swipe for more deets and if you feel inclined read the description of my totem below. 🤗✨
So many things from my past have inspired and shaped who I've become, it was way too hard to pick just one. The View-Master toy supplied many awesome escapes and wonder. I’d pop in a slide and be instantly transported to another world! I love music and remember recording some of my fav tunes from the radio, trying to record a whole song from the radio was such a fun challenge. Video games and computers have always been a part of my childhood. Late nights with family and friends trying to beat a game seemed to have set me up for late night design sessions. Skateboarding was and still is a huge inspiration for me, from the tricks, board graphics, fashion and culture; it keeps fueling me. Whenever I get stuck on a project I switch gears and pick up my board. While focusing on trying to land tricks my brain is working in the background helping me find a solution to my design problem.
