For work to be meaningful and beneficial to this weird rock that we are on, designers must check their privilege, presumptions, biases, and motivations constantly. With that being said, I would like to issue a brief preface to my beliefs. My beliefs are firmly worded, but open in nature. This is because I'm passionate about humanity and design, in that order. I recognize my privilege as a person who is cis, hetero, and white. My beliefs are constantly changing as I grow and learn. I welcome all opportunities to become more informed and three-dimensional as a human.
