Work History

About For me, Industrial Design represents the perfect balance between creative expression and practical considerations. As such, I try to design with research and inspiration to create original solutions, but still conform to constraints. With an educational background in mechanical engineering, I am uniquely aware of the requirements of real-world products. As a creative person, I can also generate many alternatives during the process of a project. I then have the technical skills and aesthetic sensibilities to fully realize the final design. Industrial Design is the perfect intersection.
