Lead Technology Trainger
I was not born a digital native. I became a convert. While my core sensibilities are rooted in traditional media, over my career I have discovered how technology shapes the lens that design is seen through. Our interpretation of tradition, culture, and aesthetics pass through this lens to become our understanding of the world we inhabit. Between the interface of Technology and Architecture, I see how the powers of computation and building information modeling will increasingly dominate the way we create and manage design data. What remains to be seen is what agency designers will have to shape what I have dedicated myself to pursue: Beautiful Data.
