As a citizen of this earth, I believe we need to give more than we take. For those who can, we need to leave this world a better place than how we found it.
Design needs a new relationship with the world, one that is more focused on our planet’s needs. There is a shift happening, younger generations are more conscious of the social impact the brands they transact with have. Every time we spend money, we are casting a vote, for the type of world we want to live in. There is this sense of conscious capitalism – customers want brands in their lives to demonstrate positive effects on society.
This shift has been recognized by big businesses – unfortunately most of their efforts are designed around profit rather than actual good. So my desire is to make a difference however I can. I want to leave a legacy thats not about me, but about the positive impact I had on the world around me.
I want to bring together creativity, empathy and strategic thinking to solve problems and design experiences with social or environmental benefit. To draw on my background and experience to understand and articulate peoples unmet needs, and design solutions to improves lives and drive business and social growth.
So this is my calling card, if you share my passion or you are looking for someone to help you or your organization on their mission please email me, I would love to hear from you.
Causes and Organizations I support
charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. What makes them special is how they are changing the way charities are run. With 100% of public donations going to water projects and the ability for donors to see exactly how their donation is making an impact, charity water is reinstalling the faith in charities and their activities.
If you are like me, you much prefer to give your time or skills to a good cause then just money. There are so many ways you can help, big or small and a great way to find these opportunities is through Volunteer Match. From one-off projects to full-time volunteer work, there is something for everyone.
Imagine if everytime you went for a walk or a run or a bike ride or to the gym, you could earn money for your favorite charities, for free! Well, you can. I am a huge fan of finding free ways to give back to the world and this is one of my favorites.
