helping you find what you are looking for

Any design problem has a vast multitude of possible solutions. The challenge is in finding the solution which, while composed of the same elements as all the others, represents something wholly different and unique. My design philosophy is based on this search for unique and individual solutions. Design is like the search for clovers; it requires great attention to detail and at the same time an awareness of how many, many things fit together as a whole. It takes time, patience, thoroughness and a little bit of luck.
