Recently there have been many changes in my life. Change is good, but not easy. Sometimes I stop, step back from my life and ask myself "is this working for me?" And usually I can say "no" to a number of things. Many things I do in life I have learned from my parents, friends, and/or teachers and never question because that's all I know. The more educated I have become the more I have started to question, and more changes have taken place.
Recently I have been exposed to a higher level of design then I knew existed. Not only talent-wise, but design that makes a change in the world. Design that connects people, inspires people, and in some cases saves lives. This change has been mind blowing. This knowledge takes everything I have been working on for the past 8 years and puts it in a new perspective. Where I thought I was and where I really am are very different. And before all of the classes, talks, and events I didn't have this new scale to weigh my career. It's humbling, and at times frustrating.
