What Plans? Figuring It Out As You Go
I've never had much success - or fun - making and sticking with plans.
Looking back on my life and career so far, it seems almost everything I've done that worked was improvised, guessed, figured out as I went along, and out of the blue. I like it that way.
When I 'started' (aka picked the name and set up a website simply so I could have an outlet to share the work I was making) NoPattern in 2002 while still in high school, I really couldn't have guessed it would eventually turn into an actual company, my career, my livelihood.
From skipping college, to working out of my parent's house, to creating personal art & design, to getting & doing client work, to running a business, I'll be sharing about how I've learned to embrace never knowing what's around the corner and how to figure it out as you go.
