My personal life makes my work life. There is a constant overlap in my interests, skills, abilities, and passions. At work, I’m simply a focused version of myself, and that focus moves to what our customers bring to the table. These could be napkin sketches of products, or hundred page binders of market research and ID renderings, but I have to design and make prototypes. My skills in my professional life come from my personal life, and both build off one another every day.
