For an exploratory college thesis project I researched the intersection of design and anthropology to better understand how our personal experiences can create empathetic connections between cultures and across generations. Today, that design study has evolved into an open-source documentary; collecting and sharing the stories of humans on our planet. Together we can weave a colorful network of life’s strives and dives as we draw insights from our past and share the lessons of our existence.

An open-source cultural & social documentary,
the ethnography of our human story

Experiences help us make connections & build relationships. Experiences create memories upon which emotions develop & mature. Experiences tell stories of the trials through the past into the unknown future. Experiences forge knowledge & intuition progressive application. Experiences construct confidence in personal skill & talent. Experiences are everything, they make us who we are and they provide us with a foundation for the future, they are in every soul.

To completely understand the human condition you need to know where society has come from, where it is at, and where it is headed. Experiences bring us closer to discovering ourselves and those who share connected experiences. Every experience is a memory, something learned, the story of our unique progress through our lives...share a story and build from experience.
