If everyone does something the same way, it does not necessarily mean that it is the best way of doing it. It is often the most complex problems that can be solved through simple solutions however, it is those simple solutions that are hard to come by.
In my career, I have had the opportunity to expose myself to a wide variety of technologies. In my personal life, I get excited about learning something new as often as I can. This provides me with the tools to always experiment and the passion to evolve as a designer.
With 8 years of experience as a designer has earned me several awards yet leading a team has grown me more on a personal level. Lead by example and feed off one another’s positive energy.
With a firm understanding of various manufacturing processes, I am able to scale a project from small to mass manufacture within a short period of time. Fast in my decisions and efficient in my software stemmed the need for me to teach other designers as well. Thus I began an internship program at my company to show other designers an insight into the industry, and provide them with new skills they can use in their final year of study and further in their careers.
Feedback is always welcome.
