I always say that I try to make the world better by making things, and usually I (and most designers) do this by making a thing or a product. My training in design taught me to create physical things in order to address issues, but the more time I spend in this problem solving mindset, the more I realize that making more STUFF isn't always the most effective way to tackle certain problems. Sometimes the world doesn't need another new product. Often, I think that sharing a story, idea or experience can end up having a larger impact—not to mention stories are easier to spread around and never end up at the landfill.
The stories you'll see on Story Hopper are snapshots of my life, the things I do on a day-to-day basis. Of course, this isn't everything I do, just what I think makes sense to share. I imagine Story Hopper as a place for videos that go beyond amusement—that try to inspire, inform, educate or trigger people to think differently about the world around us. Over the next few months, I'll be sharing my videos here on Core77 as well. Feel free to share your ideas and comments below.
