I think I’m becomming more old fashioned. I prefer real, tangible things that have taken time to create. A nice handmade item is worth more to me than something mass produced. I want to see some soul in the product, and know that someone cared when it was made.

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
