This is the first blog post on my new updated website. I originally created this website strictly to be used as a design portfolio. It will still include my portfolio and I will update it as I continue along in my career and gain new experiences. But now, I hope that this website goes far beyond just being a portfolio for a potential employer to check out for 10 seconds. I hope that it shows a little more about who I really am, what I'm passionate about, and where I plan to go professionally.
I have pretty serious plans for my future as far as my professional career is concerned. I don't have it written down and to be honest I have next to no idea how it might come and what the final result will look like in all of its glory...but it ends in lots of success. Call it arrogance, or confidence, or maybe you think that I think I'm deserving of something. It doesn't matter to me. I know I have a lot of hard work ahead to achieve the things I want for myself(and soon to be wife) and I have no doubts that I will make it happen. That's just my mindset.
It's going to be a fun, scary, and challenging road but I am looking forward to it. I plan to use this site as a little glimpse inside of the process. I will post on just about anything here. Not just about architecture, design, or business in general but also probably a lot about sports too. I have pretty strong opinions when it comes to sports, it's just a part of who I am. Even though most "designers" seem to be immersed in only that, or believe that they have to be focused only on design, I do not prescribe to that thinking. I suppose if trying to be the next Frank Gehry or Zaha Hadid is their goal then perhaps that's what they need to do. It's not my goal so I'll continue to be the person I always was before I became an educated design thinker.
I suppose I'll stop here before I start ranting, there will be plenty of that in the future. Until next time...
