During grade school, I always got in trouble for constantly doodling. I had no idea that path would lead me towards attending a great art school and becoming an industrial designer. As an industrial designer I'm always driven to keep on learning, coming up with unique ideas and being attentive towards others. In the end, I wish to create desirable products.
