I am a multidisciplinary designer practicing innovation in every medium, pushing the limits of what is possible.
I CREATE PRODUCTS
that are intelligently tailored to the user's needs. I achieve success and innovation when I play in the space where fashion and function meet.
I CREATE INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCES
that are engaging and magical. Some combine creativity and my artistic vision with cutting edge technology and R&D, while others use traditional materials and provocative questions to engage communities to leave people touched, moved and inspired.
I CREATE ARTIFACTS
that bring joy, excitement and inquiry to people's lives.
I am currently seeking new career opportunities and am open to creative new ventures. I specialize in Interdisciplinary Collaborations, Industrial Design, Interactive Exhibitions and Soft Product Design. Please contact me!
