What do you love about design?

The potential to make a huge, positive impact on the world.

Why do you teach?

I get to know people from all different backgrounds and help them unlock a new way of seeing and interacting with their surroundings – and their enthusiasm for design inspires me!

Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.

After earning my design degree from Western Washington University I interned at a small studio in Seattle and had a couple short contracts before landing my first full time job at Xbox. I worked as a visual designer on the team that designed the first user-interface for the Xbox One console and I helped create the mobile and PC experiences as well.

What or who are you loving right now?

I recently found an album full of postcards sent to my great grandfather during the early 1900s and I can’t get enough of it. The old paper, beautiful illustrations, and perfect script handwriting that talks about life on the farm in Kansas… I love it! Right now I’m working on photographing them to share with family and incorporate into future projects.

If you were a typeface, what would you be?

According to an online quiz I would be Courier.
