What is your dream project?
My dream project is an interactive light art exhibit/environment.

What motivates and inspires you?
Innovation inspires me. Seeing a project where someone uses light in a completely new way excites me.

What was your favorite subject in school? Why?
My favorite subjects were Music Theory, Physics, Theatre, and English. As a kid, I was always taking apart my toys to see how they worked. These were the subjects that allowed me to fully take apart and analyze the world around me.
