Design & Entrepreneurship

I’m Nathan Carroll. Since I was young, I’ve had a passion for storytelling and great design- particularly telling stories through photography and disassembling things I found interesting.

More recently, I attended a community college and studied design. I'm now attending Texas Tech University were I study Media Strategies with a minor in Studio Art (Metalsmithing & Jewelry Design). I plan to further develop my passions of art, design and entrepreneurship.

Philosophy

Great design is not just the outer aesthetic of an object, it’s the entire object including its journey.
