About 

Much of design, for me, begins with words. Documentation of steady and keen observations and conversations offers insights into the work of a variety of clients and their constituents. In a recent project in Queens, NY, design began with getting to know one child.

I am a multidisciplinary designer, my training and experiences blend design, research and writing through practice in visual communication design, interior design and product design. I specialize in strategic design and implementation through immersive design techniques and refined process and methodology.

I embrace life's everyday experiences -- pen eyes, open ears, open senses; observe, listen and feel because these experiences offer spectacular insight into the human condition.
