I am a child of two artists, formed in multiple and diverse cultural environments, with an insatiable appetite for new knowledge and new experiences.
I am now actively seeking a position which will enable me to continuously develop as a professional and as a human being.
My goal as a designer is to understand real people's needs and to provide elegant, practical and aesthetic solutions for everyday problems.
I firmly believe that good design can and should improve people’s lives and the world we inhabit.
I have five years of experience in the product design field both in consultancies and in-house design departments, in diverse areas ranging from medical equipment through consumer products to industrial tools. This experience gives me important real world insights on design, materials and production processes of a wide range of products.
