I have a unique take on design, combining my background in engineering with over 3 years of professional design experience. I look forward to embracing new opportunities, and challenging myself every step of the way, as I move back to the city that made me who I am today. I’m excited to apply everything I’ve learned at Litelab to my future design career, creating useful, innovative, and well made products.
