How do you make your work stand out from others?
Trying to be myself and stay unique with designs. With time you get used to a certain type of design solution you apply throughout your work. This can mean certain cuts you like to make when slicing up enclosures to create panel lines, or a particular solution you like to use for a joint system that can be a hexapod instead of a disk based setup. All these ‘habits’ of choosing materials, textures, lighting etc. is what makes your visual taste and stamp different from others that might work in the same subject matter.

What advice do you have for aspiring artists who want to work in your field?
Be curious. Expand your visual library and problem solving skills by absorbing knowledge wherever you see it. Learn to improve your data collection methods. Find out how to apply search words and phrases and how to dig to the core to find what you need. Learn how to cross-connect different data in your brain from separate subjects/sources to create new solutions and ideas. Maybe you learned how to dust-seal surgical equipment with 0-ring type rubber seals… How could that translate to designing air-tight enclosures for military submergible tech? Ask these questions to yourself and let your brain do the work. Most importantly, have fun with it and let passion be the driving force of your designs. Nothing can beat that.
