I strive to achieve a balance of simplicity and innovation in my designs. I am an observer and a problem solver designing user centered products in an attempt to improve the human condition. I try to apply Design Thinking in my everyday life so that one day it becomes second nature. I find inspiration in water because of its ability to fill any space, be it a glass of water or the Pacific Ocean. I may not be able to predict the future, but we can design it.
