I am a problem solver. I like to look at something and ask how it can be better. To me design should be a seamless communication between aesthetics and function, executed in such a way that one seems unable to exist without the other. I love to be hands on and actually build what I design. For me it is a necessity to work in three dimensions. One of my greatest strengths is fully engineering and finalizing an idea. I always have to follow things through to the end.
