Claremont, CA, US



My interest in design comes from studying the built environment and watching the world as it develops. I’m inspired by advances in technology and culture while remaining a student of history and philosophy. My goal is to integrate humanistic concepts with technological processes so that design work can be easily produced. This approach has resulted in a wide range of experience that allows me to develop creative and technical solutions for demanding project teams.
