I fell in love with design during my Freshmen year at Wentworth, and it totally changed my life. Now I can see the world through the eyes of a designer and I'm proud to have this gifted vision to make the world a better living place. I'm looking forward to work with people who share the same point of view and together we can enhance the world of design!
I was inspired by design, and now I design with inspirations!
