Nicknames?

Domo, I earned in college, because I was obsessed with Japanese art; Domino Brown Sugar a close friend gave me, because I'm sweet, of course. ;-)

When did you realize you had designer potential?

Strengths as a designer?

I am chock-full of innovation and creativity.

Weaknesses as a designer?
