♣ A designer who is a traveler – a Weltenbummler who is a designer. I travel the world, as much as I can, as often as I’m able to. Traveling is part of me, I absorb the culture, I eat the food, I walk the city and climb the mountains. I feel the community and am constantly observing, watching for inspiration. For me traveling is a form of researching, benchmarking and being on the lookout for best (and worst) practices. As a designer and researcher it is part of my personality to constantly ask questions, and try to understand where I am and who I’m with, and especially, I always try to find the why? ♣
