This video from 2013 is long, but lays out who I am and why I think design is awesome. I was nervous as heck through the whole thing.
Books, movies, video games, music and random other things all mixed together in a visual, sortable grid.
An old conversation that fills in the blanks of my career and whatnot in an interview format. My tip of the hat to Ryan and Tina for the moment.
