I am an idealist who thrives on the pursuit of innovation and evolutionary improvement to achieve great user experiences. I enjoy inter-disciplinary collaboration in making things that deserve to exist, and am looking for a new mid-senior level industrial design adventure with a company that understands the singular capacity of design to translate ideas and strategies into compelling emotional brands and useful, beautiful products.
