    An important aspect of design that I feel is often overlooked is the process that leads us to our final designs. Due to my ability to perform very well in both analog drawing and digital means of production, I can quickly draw an idea then transfer produced media into the computer. I take pride in the way in which my drawings begin as speculative, instinctive movements that ultimately drive the form and function of my designs. These diagrams show experiments in expression of movement throughout the urban environment. These drawings led to the development of a mata concept of urban movement as told by Stan Allen in Thick 2D.

    The accumulation of drawings on the pin-up wall allows me to trace my process and reference ideas that were made at the beginning of the design process. A wall is much easier to access than an archive of files.

    Through my modeling processes, I have learned much about spatial relationships, material properties, and how to be careful with modeling glue. I like to look at model building like miniature set designsetting the stage for design interventions. I have also learned much about what doesnt work when building a model. For example, a 3D digital file can exist in a program without supports, a physical model of the exact file cannot. These modeling and crafting skills can also be applied elsewhere; a land art installation, for example. I created an ephemeral spider web out of thread that was tied to a Walnut Tree. The execution of this spider web consisted of a series of carefully tied knots and measured distances. What I value most about modeling, and all areas of design, are the mistakes I make and how I can readily apply those lessons to my next design iteration.
