As a designer I seek to work within a collaborative and dedicated design team; create useful, usable, and desirable designs that satisfy the needs of the people who interact with them, as well as the goals of the company that produce them. I love design and I am especially interested in the aesthetic qualities of a design being the crux of its functionality.
