Whether it’s working as part of a team, or as the team manager; I enjoy the complete design process. I am always up for new challenges, and I’m someone that is just as interested in the mechanical aspects of design as the aesthetics. "I’m a thinker, a researcher, a sketcher, a model maker, a developer, a leader, a team player, a creator; I’m a Designer."
