I love design. I love the process, the innovation, the act of making. Each problem has an infinite number of solutions, but the evolution of a singular design towards its most elegant end product is what drives me to achieve. I want to utilize my background in design and entrepreneurship with my experience in the professional world and combine it with my enthusiasm for that evolution and process. Whether it's strategy, branding, ideation or product development, the entire spectrum of Industrial Design is what drives me to succeed.
