What I read

I just finished reading Born to Run by Christopher McDougall –it inspired me to train for a 10k! Before that I read The Circle by Dave Eggers; it tripped me out about the idea of living life in the present vs. living life constantly sharing via screens

Side projects

I am currently working on a hand-made clothing line called Aestival Apparel, which will feature complete outfits reminiscent of Burning Man and the festival subculture

Ideal team

I tend to work with clients where I communicate with one or two head liaisons to the bigger organization. I feel this works well because the head liaison can distill and compile their organization's opinions and edits into a concise and cohesive direction
