PORTFOLIO

LOVE LIST | MUSIC | MINISTRY

INSPIRATION

Sometime between grade school and high school my father introduced me to Ministry.  I believe it was Psalm 69 that was the first album we listened to, from there I quickly worked my way back in time though the earlier albums.  I fell in love songs like The Nature of Love & Effigy... you know the synth stuff.  So today when I stumbled upon the never released Anything For You track, you can understand my excitement (and shock that it took me a good number of days to get the news).

All black everything... everyday. 

Anyone who has known me for any period of time knows that black isn't just a safe go-to for me, it's a way of life.  Here are some of my latest black loves:

1  |  they're real! push-up liner     2  |  midnight in paris     3  |  berliner satchel     4  |  black ring

5  |  mars ankle booties     6  |  the mind is a terrible thing to taste     7  |  black striped shirt

"The life of a designer is a life of fight.  Fight against the ugliness.  Just like a doctor fights against disease.  For us, the visual disease is what we have around, and what we try to do is cure it somehow with design."
