Duration: Two years.
Location: Right now I’m between Vancouver and Chicago, but I’m trying to find a permanent spot.
Education: BFA in Visual Communication Design; BA in Visual and Critical Studies from School of Art Institute of Chicago, 2013.
Favorite project: One project I am proud of is a typeface called Sinistra, completed right before I graduated from college. Inspired by personal research on people forced to switch to right-handedness, Sinistra is the only example of a typeface with left-handed calligraphic traits.
Technique: I want to make people reconsider themselves. Typefaces enable people to understand their thoughts and motivates them to make tough decisions and change their outlook on life. Type feels socially conscious to me, because even if I don’t have something to address in writing, plenty of others do. In this way I can help them find a great vehicle for their expression.
Work environment: My work environment is a strange nomadic sanctuary. I always have a super clean space that I can go back to—if I need to—but I switch where I work almost every day.
Aspirations: I would like to run QuiteType (my own company) in a more formal capacity—maybe hire a few people, have a space to sell software and do consulting for larger companies.
