I believe that design is a tool for creating a better understanding between people and products, thinking about our future world, and creating unobtrusive yet immersive experiences. I love designing around constraints, pushing my abilities to their outer edges and challenging my creativity.

I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in May 2015 with a BFA in industrial design.
