I am a flaneur. I don’t primarily provide work for hire. I’m an incubator.
I make things I like. Sometimes they have commercial success, sometimes they don’t. If people want to pay for them, I’ll let them.
I am antifragile. I’ve gone off on my own to own the things I make. My process is not one of interchangeable parts and assembly lines. I make every part of the things I make. Working outside the bounds of corporate labs and product teams makes me better. This unpredictable lifestyle makes me better.
I have become a better objective-c developer. A stronger visual designer. A superior story teller. My interaction designs are simpler, clearer, and aligned with strategy. Presenting to executives and crowds has innoculated me against fear. I have been tried by fire and come away improved.
I’m looking for volatility. Challenges that I can tackle and become better from, while helping something else — a team, a product, an idea — become better too.
