This is a photo of me in 2006. I was in Amsterdam. Unknown to me at the time, I was sitting on a Frank Willems Rubens Stool - of Droog Design. It was work like this that I experienced that week that made me realize that I wanted and could do more. A year later I was in the Master's of Industrial Design Program at Pratt - from which I will present my thesis on Saturday, and graduate on May 17th.
I was wearing the same pair of jeans in this photo and today when Tejo Remy - also of Droog Design, came to visit at Pratt for a lecture, as part of the IDSA chapter. I do wish he used less glue in his work, that got a bit tiring, but all in all I think he meant well.
