I am alive.

Several of my AIGA friends were lifelines while I was very ill this past year. Visits to the hospital and to my home with smartly designed cards, cool stuff from MOCA and well packaged chocolate made it all the more bearable. : ) All kidding aside, it was these friends who taught me the value of community. I had stood beside these people volunteering, learning and creating at AIGA events over the years. It was these experiences that we shared that forged friendships that endure through thick and thin.

For many years I have spoken and taught about using design principles to create your life, they helped me use design principles, like tension, balance and depth to SAVE my life. Design saves lives, for real!!
