As a designer, I believe in smart, functional, human-centered design. I feel I have a responsibility to create alternative solutions that will improve the lives of people all around the world. I strive to use my talents for the betterment of the world as a whole and value companies with a social mission at its core. At the same time, I recognize that design, to be relevant, must be a viable business proposition. My unique educational combination of design and business strategy enables me to find the balance between idealistic and profitable.
