MA work

I am a proud descendant of the homo habilis; we share an affinity. He had a brain half the size of ours and didn't even stand upright. But he made tools with which to negotiate life and so do I. My designs are tools for living life the way I think it ought to be lived: actively, inquisitively and consciously.

My products are messengers of my simple philosophy; you may adopt them, you may adopt my philosophy. If you do, use it well. Enjoy it. If you are not enjoying it, you're not doing it right.
