Beijing, China (via Columbus, but moved to Cincy in 1990)

Born at University Hospital, so a Buckeye from birth. Grew up west of Columbus. When college time came, my father said I have three choices, I could pick Ohio State, or Ohio State or even Ohio State. So I made the best decision and went with all three. And a great decision it was! Got two degrees from tOSU, though later got another from UVa. Worked a while in Columbus, moved to Cincy in 1990. And yes, I love Skyline Chili. Went to China for the first time in 2005, and then in 2008 started traveling there regularly for work. In late 2010, I essentially began living in China. In 2012 I started my own firm in China, and hey, we are keeping pretty busy. Hard, and sometimes frustrating, work, but in the end, it's all pretty good. Only bad part is that I haven't been to a game for three years now. So I live my Buckeye life through 11W.

I’m with you NB91, I’ve spent most of my adult life working with designers. Guess what, for every talented substance abuser, there are 3 or 4 who are just as talented who are clean. Most artistic people I know are a bit “off”, and that’s OK by me, some are just a little weird, just not addicted to crap. The whole you have to do drugs to be artistic is a load of crap pushed by people who just want an excuse.

I know when were kids, and this was a time concurrent with dinosaurs, we would play the game, the floor is lava and try to get from place to place without touching the floor. Well, as I became a parent years later, I learned there was something worse than lava. And that was stepping on a Lego in the middle of the night carrying a glass of water to your sick kid. Legos, the Claymore mine of toys.

I know if I thought I might get hit, you can be sure that beforehand, I would Taiwan on.

Oh my, I was wrong, so wrong. There was no thrill in going to Mgoblue website. Speaking as a design professional, I would give it 1/5, would not go again. 

The site layout is not intuitive, you really have to work your around the site to find content. Content is not kept fresh, there is a limited amount of content, the site loads painfully slow, multiple text types, text that runs into other text, images that only partially load, and the graphics, wow, it really looks like a freshman design effort, and a middle to bottom of the class freshman. I could go on and on, but that’s enough self inflicted pain for the day.
