Marrying people's needs to business goals can be a challenge. A puzzle to be investigated and solved. Designing helpful and engaging digital products that make a difference in a people's lives gives me plenty motivation. Listening to others to understand their perspective on the problem they hope to solve makes me a better designer, and more importantly, allows me to design solutions to the problems in their lives.
And when I'm not designing, I spend time with my family, play video games, or chasing one of my four-legged friends around the park.
