I live my life in design mode. I am constantly thinking about how to improve upon existing designs, or creating new products that are able to enhance peoples interactions, user experiences, and lives. My Portfolio is an ever evolving body of work, reflecting my growth and progression, as well as my eagerness to learn and better myself.
