Statement

Humans have a natural capacity to experience wonder that is often buried under the work and concerns of daily life. I want to create opportunities for people to reconnect with that sense of wonder, to be surprised by designs, sounds or crazy construction, and to spend time discovering small moments of beauty or meaning inside a fun-house of playful creativity.
