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.

FEATURED JOURNALS, CONTESTS & LITERATURE


Darling, Don't You DareTo the girl who skips dinner,
Because her reflection hurts more than
Starving.
To the boy who wears sweatshirts
On hot summer days,
Because he doesn’t want his mother to cry over his
Scars.
To the boy who weeps uncontrollably
Until he falls asleep,
Because it’s the only way to escape into his
Dreams.
To the girl who spends her days in her bedroom,
Because the dark is more peaceful than her
Mind.
To the child who gets angry,
Because no one understands.
To the teens who self-harm,
To the ones in recovery,
To the ones that just can’t do it anymore…
Stay Strong.
For the girl who skips meals
And the boy who wears sweatshirts,
For the boy who cries,
The girl who hides,
And the ones who just can’t do it anymore.
Because darling,
You’ve come this far.
Don’t you dare give up on it, now.
Poisonous Eyes“There once was a child. This child was no different from a child you might find elsewhere. However where you’d find this child was what made it unique. The child was left behind in the forest without family or home ;however, the child did not weep for it was not alone. In the forest a bird gazed upon this child without love. Without hate. Without care. It saw the child and that was enough. It saw the child when no else did. So the child loved the bird. The child loved the bird as one might love a mother. And the bird gazed upon this child. As the child grew, the bird’s gaze also grew. Into something more. Into frittered whispers and welcoming chirps and tweets. But along with those the gaze held. Without love or hate. And the boy’s gaze also held. Filled with love. They continued in this idyllic ignorance until one day the bird went to hunt. The hunt itself was nothing new however the prey had changed. Rather than the snake which the bird   StopStop.
I said stop.
That’s you. Yes, you, the reader. I want you to stop. I want you to stop moving. I want you to stop breathing. See how long you can hold your breath.
Are you doing it? Are you holding your breath?
Can you feel the nagging feeling, calling on you to open your mouth and inhale? Can you resist it?
Do you see how unnatural it is? Breathing is what keeps you inside this world. It is something your body does without thought, without command. You have to tell yourself not to do it. Almost every other action occurs at your command, breathing occurs at the lack of command. You have to force yourself to stop doing it, and it gets more and more difficult to do. Your entire body screams at you to open your mouth an inhale. Your own mind reminds you again and again that you must breath. It pulls you like gravity down again and again until you can’t think of anything else, can’t do anything else, until you take a breath. Your body and your own mind wants you to.
