About 

I am an industrial designer with a passion for space. I am interested in creating disruptive design, design that changes perceptions, and design that creates light. I am interested in pursuing furniture design, designing exhibitions, environments, experiences, humanity, and humility within products or places. I like to use my hands to see objects come to life. I like to see objects amplify life. Contact me for any interesting opportunities, I am looking for new experiences.
