I possess a multidisciplinary background in design, including a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Design and a Master’s Degree in Urban and Landscape Design, Architecture and Urban Planning. To compliment this knowledge, I have also developed my skills towards Graphic Design and Project Management. This wide knowledge in design allows me to have a holistic mind, making analytical connections through different disciplines, and being able to communicate using different languages and tools within a multidisciplinary team. In addition, I can contribute to your design culture with my multicultural living experience and education that has broadened my vision and appreciation towards different cultures. This has enabled me to incorporate these experiences into various aspects of the design process; such as innovation strategies, user’s demographics, new technologies, sustainable design and ergonomics.
