Visual Designer

Hello there! I’m happy we get to share some good vibes right now. Check it all out and always feel welcome to reach out @davallree or hit up my inbox. Whether it be about design, the unknown-but-exciting-future, your troubles, or just about life, let's talk for a while.  You could also help me out and proofread my résumé.

Currently, I contribute to the Material Design team at Google San Francisco as a visual designer. Recently, I have contributed to the defining of Google’s Material Theme and the visual exposition of Material.io, the home of Material Design. Theming, layout, and new ways to express identity through technology really get me excited, but so does ice cream or a pretty sunset. My only goal is to remain thoughtful with all I encounter.  I currently live in San Francisco with some plants, the hills, and my canary... and we would love to hear how you are doing.

There is no impossibility as to what ‘form’ conscious life may take.

Because of our infinite relationships, potentialities are there. The shapes of form are not yet exhausted and there are no miracles beyond living matter. Though flesh in its most radiant beauty is miraculous, it does not imply that Nature has exhausted all possibilities of pleasuring in flesh.

“The mind in repose becomes the speculum of all creation” — we hear too much about relaxing and ‘meditation’. My mind (and I expect yours) works in reverse — the stimulus is from without — always chaotic, procreative and spatial of strange conjunctures; and ‘repose’ a period of fatigue or sleep, a renewal of the tension necessary for contexturation of creativity.

The supreme defeat is resignation. The triumph over death and all things is by fearless desire. There is not one thing obtained in this world except by effort and struggle to render desire. The born genius is only spending the virtue of previous effort.
