"To me, empathy should guide the hands of the creator. When designing, I seek to ascertain the needs and desires of the ones I am designing for. Garnering that understanding is already half the fulfillment and forms a good foundation for the creative process. From there on, it becomes a journey never twice the same. Fluid and emotional, and yet, always grounded, till you hold that final creation in your hands. It gives me satisfaction hard to describe in words. Always."
