A LIFE OF PURSUING MY VISIONS

The use of the root image visually represents the intertwining and additive relationship between the things we do in our lives and how those become the root of who we grow into.


Welcome

My Perspective….

My belief is that our surroundings can greatly impact how we feel. I’m not talking about the basics like being cold or wet but rather I’m referring to the more intangible effect that the “right” or “wrong” backdrop to life’s activities can have on our happiness, outlook, motivation, enjoyment and so on.


It’s why Art Galleries have a certain look or why so much effort is put into the design and decorating of a restaurant in an attempt to set a mood that compliments both the items and the prices offered on its menu.


How “the rubber meets the road”

Not many of us can truly impact the world around us, myself included. I found that one approach is to focus your efforts on a much smaller world, an environment that you can create as the perfect backdrop to your life.


All of us do it to a greater or lesser degree. Picking a new colour to paint a room or planting flowers in a garden. These are all attempts to modify your environment to better represent the “backdrop” you want influencing you in that space.


I’m going to confess that I fall in the “greater degree” category of that previously mentioned scale in my attempts to create that perfect personal backdrop. The majority of this website will focus on the projects I’ve taken on trying to create environments that set the desired mood.


I will be posting photos of what I’ve done and in time a blog that will tell a story of the process (successes and failures). My site also includes work I’ve done professionally, as an Industrial Designer, Product designer, Model Maker and as a Renovation Contractor.


I won’t and can’t list all of the things I will put on this website so if you’re okay going on a trip without a map but trust the guide to take you somewhere interesting, then buckle up, here we go……..


Ready, set…

Go

I hope you enjoy the journey!


Rules of Engagement

image3

Let's start by my telling you why I built this site.

Here are my going in assumptions…

  • You actually know who’s site you’re on.
  • You're interested in what I'm up to.
  • You have time on your hands and that you’re desperate to fill it.
  • You’d like to see how much trouble I get into.

What to expect…

  • My professional work as an Industrial Designer/Product designer.
  • The work that I call “artistic expression”.
  • Projects that attempt to change, personalize and create an environment that sets the backdrop to one’s life.
  • Miscellaneous creations, repairs, installations, etc., that share the other moments of what I fit into my life.
  • And finally, a blog that wraps a story around my life’s adventures, that up until now existed only as an email sent to a few family members.

Just a few thoughts.....

This website was set up to share my life’s pursuits with family, old friends and occasionally some new friends.

  • I’m not selling or advertising anything in any way.
  • I will attempt to make it fun and interesting.
  • ONLY positive/constructive comments/feedback is welcome.
  • I will be sharing more than I would normally be comfortable with so maintaining my anonymity (with others) is very important to me.
