Having worked in many design-related fields/disciplines, from furniture and product design to exhibitions and interiors; I have conceptualized objects, ideas, products, and methods that encourage others to live a more creative and social life. I want to develop relationships focusing on growing stronger meanings, relationships, and understandings between people and the development of tomorrow’s products.
