"It’s through mistakes that you actually can grow.
You have to get bad in order to get good."

– Paula Scher

I'm a very curious person; the type that can get lost in a string of wikipedia articles.

When an interesting idea comes to mind, I very often can't just let it go. Whether I dive into a quick sketch or build a real high fidelity prototype in Keynote or Framer, I'm curious to see how it would feel in real life.

..and then comes the wave of questions my friends, family, and basically anyone I meet have to endure. What do you think of this? How does it feel? In what ways is it worse? If you had a magic wand, how would you change it? And so many more.

They're not all good ideas - in fact most of them aren't great at all. But I've learned a lot of each project or prototype that I wouldn't have with out building it and it's something I continue to enjoy doing.
