I'm an industrial designer from the SF Bay Area studying at Art Center College of Design. I design timeless products and experiences that tell stories. I'm interested in all things design whether it's making technology more human and personal, creating spacial environments that spark playful moments, or designing a better chair that builds communities.

sustainability & biomimicry
Sustainability is critical for the future. When I design, no matter what the prompt is, I make sure to incorporate my values so products that I bring to life are produced ethically, utilize resources more sustainably, and have life cycles that are thoughtfully planned out.
I'm also passionate about biomimicry; design that takes inspiration from the forms, processes, and ecosystems of the natural world. The future of design is not just taking inspiration from other man made technologies, but taking inspiration from the world around us.
