I can't believe I didn't see this article until just now, but OMG, check out this awesome little write up on my work by Core 77. I have always dreamed of designs being written about on this site and am incredibly honored that they featured my vessels in their coverage of Tent London 2015.
I am honored to have been selected for this year's Newcity Design 50 issue. For the past five years of living in Chicago, I have read and been inspired by the people selected for these articles every year. I am so proud to be a designer in Chicago and have been honored to represent part of the creative spirit that thrives here.

I am going to be showing some new collaborative work, between Rick Valicenti and myself, at Typeforce7. The piece is an performative event and interactive installation that will be most exciting to see on the opening night, Friday February 26th at Co-Prosperity Sphere (3219 S MORGAN STREET, CHICAGO IL). I hope you will be able to make it.
