  Nathan Covert   Nathan loves design.  In his own words, "Work and life are not separate. Design is everything, from the screen you're reading this on, to the paper towel you clean your dishes with. Every time I look around I learn something new about design, maybe it's the way my fridge closes or how a light bulbs screws in. Good design has universal truths."
