Bio


I'm a generalist. I create and learn new things everyday, going from graphic designer to editor to web designer and developer is just what I do for fun. Do what you love, love what you do.

Work


Founder of Designn, Editor-in-Chief of Designn Magazine and Co-Founder of Soosci.

An idea worth spreading


Today the world in moving forward in every aspect - technology, business, education, healthcare - but what about creativity? Tests (Such as Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking) have shown that over the decades our IQ scores have kept growing, but has shown a decline in creative thinking. In other words, we are smarter, yet less equipped to find novel approaches to problems.

So back in 2011 I started a project called Designn (www.designn.org) whose goal is to educate about, inform about and spread creativity worldwide by offering various free services to the community - for example Publishing free digital magazines, creating creative blogs, funding free resources, spreading creativity through social media, promoting arts and crafts, and so on.

I'm passionate about


Studying medicine, spreading creativity, making art, developing new technologies and solutions through creative thinking.

Once you
  AnxietySometimes,
Sick isn't something
You can see.
When I'm standing there -
Sweaty palms
Heart racing
Fists bracing -
Absolutely terrified
For 'no reason at all',
I hope it makes you
Feel big and tall,
To tell me I'm being stupid.
When I can't talk to someone -
Because my throat is dry,
And I feel sick,
Like I can't
Catch my breath,
Like I'm going to cry
Like I'm hurtling
Towards death -
Don't tell me to
'Get over myself'.
When I'm crying -
Can't breathe,
And my knees
Go weak
And I'm too scared
To speak
And every heart
Beat
Makes me jump -
How can you tell me
I need to 'grow up'?
When I can't get on a bus -
Because so many people,
So many eyes,
And my mind is force-feeding
Me so many lies -
Don't tell me I 'think I'm better
Than everyone else'.
I'm trying my hardest.
Really, I am.
Would you tell someone with a broken leg
To just get up and walk?
Would you tell someone with no tongue
To open their mouth and talk?
Would you tell a wingless angel
To fly?
No.
So tell me why -
When it is
  A note for people who need a kind wordJust a note,
For anyone who has felt,
Like they have been broken.
Just like an old toy.
Thrown and tossed around like a rag doll.
To anyone who feels,
They re tearing at their seams.
And they re losing all control.
A note to the little girl,
Who sat.
And waited for her mother.
Or her father.
To come back home,
To keep her safe,
While she cried.
Or to at least of said goodbye.
And wishes they d come back and tell her,
Why?
A note to the lonely boy.
So quiet and reserved.
Who sits and takes their cruel words.
Thinking it s what he deserved.
To be thrown into lockers,
And thinking he can find something better,
With the company of a razor,
Rather than a human.
Because humans have caused him more hurt,
Than the blades that pierce his skin.
A note to the beautiful girls.
Who walk for miles,
Until they have blisters on their feet.
Because they will not accept the defeat,
Of having to see numbers,
That tell them they are not worthy.
They are not pretty.
And they should not be living.
If they c
