Originally from Virginia, Malcolm spent most of his childhood growing up in tropical environments like Honduras and Brazil, which inspired his diverse perspectives on life and design. He majored in visual communication design at Virginia Tech, where his graduating thesis was all about the correlating aspects of interior and graphic design (which included a very convincing theory that designing the function of a printed piece is no different than designing a functional physical space). Since then, he has leaned into a love for small-to-large DIY projects, renovating homes across his home state of Virginia, and hopefully inspiring others to do the same. More broadly, Malcolm is an endless overthinker, and can usually be found typing and retyping emails/texts/this biography perpetually to [perceived] perfection. He’s also very much into traveling for extensive periods of time, trying to maintain an active lifestyle, and obsessing over his two unbelievably adorable nephews.
