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!
