HOW MIGHT WE: INSPIRE CHANGE
How might we inspire change and create a better world to pass down to our children? This is the question I so often ask in dealing with my own work.

As I began to learn about Design Thinking and User Experience, my world began to align and I started to see the world not for how it is, but what it could be. My focus in design now lies in the future, as I've made
