Work is important, but more than making money, I'm interested in making space in my life. Designers talk about whitespace. It's the area in the design where things aren't. It's not the text or the pictures. It's the empty space around the text. Life needs whitespace. Space to enjoy family. Space to experience and enjoy God's grace. Whitespace is when I'm not thinking about incrementing social networking stats or designing great apps or websites.
This is my philosophy and—candidly—my daily struggle. I have a wonderful wife and three boys. Life is hectic, so the only way to create whitespace is by ruthlessly saying no, which can be so hard. But my family and faith are worth it. A missionary once said, "He is no fool to give up what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose."
I live in Atlanta.
