This Design Fundamentals project was featured on Core77, which motivated me to try to make every project a success.

My design process begins with intensive research leading to innovation and a deep understanding of what people desire.

What I Do

From grills to biotech to furniture, I've done it all, and will continue to evolve my skillset to be able to take on any project and make each one a success.

Who I Am

I am a researcher, a psychologist, an artist, a scientist, a designer. I am endlessly curious about the world and how people work, and tirelessly work to improve myself as a designer.

How I Work

Each project starts with intensive research, to uncover areas of unmet needs. I then approach the problem from the consumer's perspective, to create products that generate desire.  

Clients

I have been priviledged to work with the following clients:
