Inspiration for me is drawn from a multicultural background that has been built from having to constantly travel and relocate between the US and Asian during a big part of my life. Besides observing the beauty of architecture and design in my travels, I have also had the chance to work with various people from different cultural background. These experiences have given me a different perspective on global interior design. Throughout the time I spent studying in AAU, I have gained new knowledge and design skill through reading, drawing, designing and practising while also working in the field with those who I can continue learn from and be inspired by. I believe design is being innovative through making new changes.
