Welcome to my design workshop.
This website is a kind of "open studio" where I obsessively document my approach to design. I also spend a lot of time thinking about creative independence, which is comprised of:


Identifying and overcoming the barriers that keep me from moving forward.


Getting past the fears, uncertainties, and doubts that block creative flow.


How to make a living, not sell out, and decide what is really essential.

I share so others on a similar path might save themselves some pain; my thoughts and observations can be found in the main blog and process journals sections. To see a sampling of my accompanying work, start with the Productivity Tools Page and see what catches your eye. Thanks for visiting!
