Becoming a Bit of a Nomad

One of the beauties of my job is that I get to travel (a ton!). This past year I have been to numerous cities within the US (think New York, D.C., Denver, Detroit, Colorado Springs, Boulder, San Diego, LA, Louisville), and was even able to explore outside the country in Beijing (albeit pretty quickly). While constant travel like this can be difficult and mentally and physically exhausting, my hope is that I can use it as an opportunity to further explore the world around me and unearth more of the beauty that is all around. 

Here are a few snapshots from my travels, taken on the road (with an iPhone!!) and as inspiration as I continue my design career. Enjoy!
