About me

 

I have a very beautiful Italian friend

who used to stand out for her long blonde dreadlocks, which she would twist up

into a bun. She surprised us all one day when she suddenly chopped them all off.

When asked why she acted so impulsively she said, il cambiamento è vita, 'change

is life'. That sentence has stuck with me ever since. I think this is why I am happiest

when learning and trying new things;

it makes me feel alive. I enjoy working with other people for the same reason; I learn from them, and I change for the better.

 

A few years ago a friend and I won

a Creative Conscience award and the certificate read, "'Be the change that you wish to see in the world' - Mahatma Gandhi". I really do believe that change

can be powered by design, and I hope that my creativity will one day make a positive difference to other people's lives.
