As a designer I want to make the world around me more beautiful, ease the suffering of others, and make everyday life more fun and exciting.
From the moment I learned about industrial design, I knew that this career was the perfect fit for me. I am a MAKER through-and-through. I get the most satisfaction when I am faced with a difficult problem, that I can utilize my creativity and technical nerdy-ness to solve. I think best with rapid sketching, visual brainstorms, and building physical models to proof my ideas. I enjoy surrounding myself with other creative and innovative minds to bounce ideas off of. Working in design teams is where I believe truly great ideas are created, and I thrive in those situations. Industrial design gives me the opportunity to continually be challenged, to learn, and to create great things, and that is exactly what I am going to do.
