Without great solitude no serious work is possible

THE JOURNEY IS THE POINT.

Judd is a dyed-in-the-wool doer, obsessed with craft and compelled to create. For him, to live is to make.

Always looking to better observe, better understand, better execute, Judd embraces the creative life to the point of obession. He is compelled to make stuff, plain and simple. Though perfection is impossible, he sees the personal pursuit of it worth the effort anyway. 

THINK. MAKE. REPEAT.

Born against all odds to a pair of plane crash survivors, Judd comes from a family of artists, designers, and makers.

A dot-bom survivor, Judd learned the trade of a designer as a high school intern and has been doing it ever since. Expanding into design strategy, copywriting, architecture and analytics over 15 years, he’s evolved into a strategic design leader with the ability to think big and go wide.

Creative life outside of work involves an ever-lengthening backlog of projects. Writing novels, fine art painting, traveling, storyboarding for films—there is always more to do and too little time to do it.
