How did you first discover Action Method?

From my partners at Snarkitecture. There are so many options out there I tend to get all my products from friends. 

How do you use Action Method?

Action Method has become my all around notebook in the studio especially great for team meetings. 

Which Action Method product is your favorite and why?

I really love the Reduced Dot Grid Book. I find that having the technical touch of the dot grid on the page allows me to sketch at scale which is critical to communicating architectural ideas. The control of the grid is there when I want it but also subtle enough where I can still let loose when I want to. 

What's one tip you'd like to share with aspiring creatives?

As advanced as technology gets I still find it's critical to be able to draw your ideas if only to remind yourself that simplicity and clarity are key.
