I view design as a challenge to create an experience. As a designer, I am dedicated to every aspect of my designs, from concepts to drawings to models. I am a highly organized person and can effectively communicate my ideas through my use of media. I believe that all of the objects I design should be easy to use, yet elegant. Most of all they should improve the lives of the people they surround.
