My Design Principles

I found my direction in design through the words of my heroes.

  • ...the master's tools will never dismantle the master's house. They may allow us temporarily to beat him at his own game, but they will never enable us to bring about genuine change.

    Audre Lorde
  • Be present for the whole journey, learners that you are. Be present for the whole journey.

    Halcolm (Michael Patton)
  • Stop blaming everybody else for the problem or pretending that it is too hard for us to solve. Let’s put that spirit of innovation and embrace of radical change to good use.

Josh, the Human

Beyond my working hours, I try to be a helper when I can from volunteering at local community art days to making design conferences more accessible.

Otherwise, you can usually find me cooking at home with my wife, sliding around with a tennis racket, or chilling with friends at the Shamrock Pub in 홍대.
