“I am driven to learn about the use of different material applications and forms are the root of my interest. As my knowledge expands, I quickly start to question the sustainability aspect. The notion of how most products are not sustainable makes me question the design process entirely. My questioning leads me to stop questioning and start creating - becoming an industrial designer.”

At a young age, I became very curious about knowing how products are made. As a child, I loved to watch the television series “How It’s Made”. I was driven to learn about the use of different material applications and forms were the root of my interest. As my knowledge expanded, I quickly started to question the sustainability aspect. The notion of how most products are not sustainable made me question the design process entirely. My questioning led me to stop questioning and start creating- becoming an industrial designer.  

Traveling is one of my many passions. It inspires my creativity to its full potential as it exposes me to cultures and challenges my skill to constantly adapt to a new setting.  

Team sports have always played a big role in my life. I was the team captain of the rowing team and MVP basketball player that has a desire for constant self-growth, to challenge leadership skills, and to seek harmony within a team. I truly believe that is how I developed my discipline, my value of seeking harmony within a group, and is what taught me that effort never fails.  

Thoughts on design:  

I believe that design should constantly challenge society to evolve – to change for the better. Creating products that obey “Form Follows Function” while maintaining an emotional connection to the product is what I look for when designing. Dieter Ram’s Ten Principles for Good Design is ultimately what design should respect when innovating. When a design is justified to be sustainable, I believe that is a good design. Design inspires me because of my drive for constant change for an improvement in our everyday life as a society. Whether it be a product that impacts one individual, a group, or as a society, I thrive to make an impact. 

To me, design is like a bird in flight. The bird’s journey is never linear; it faces cold fronts, warm fronts, storms, and sunshine. Regardless of their journey, birds never lose their momentum and sight of their goals that lead them to their destination.
