As a designer, I take pride in having an extensive knowledge of materials, their functional and aesthetic abilities and experimental possibilities, and of course, their inevitable limitations. My critical decision-making is derived from a deep background in hands-on professional work equally in both workshop and studio environments, providing the breadth of experience and organization needed to plan and execute through complex situations. I practice with an analytical and thorough approach to seeing through a problem towards the best solution. As a graduate with honors of the Rhode Island School of Design, my professional skills are complemented by a strong academic rigor and a persistent desire to continue learning on the job and beyond.
