Problems of My Time

A Millennial Builds His Own Practice

"Problems of My Time" is a small set of reflections on my first experiences as a young professional, mirroring the difficulties that many young designers face. The lecture below is a reflection on my own working career, and how I redirected myself into a new work-life balance: a balance that privileges learning, while gaining essential competencies, work experience, and compensation!

My story can be used as an encouragement for people who feel lost after multiple job applications, or for those who feel limited as a 'graduate intern.' I hope to inspire them to restore balance and feel empowered to form a stable, confident base from which to take their career into their own hands.

Be resilient, be assertive, and believe in yourself!

Thanks to Dirk Eijsbouts and Angelo Chacon for recording and support.
