About 

My interest in design comes from observing the built environment and experiencing the world as it develops. I'm inspired by advances in technology and material culture while remaining a student of history and philosophy, and my main pursuit is to expand and integrate a wide variety of influences and concepts that might represent the human condition and the importance of objects and spaces that define our relationships. This viewpoint has yielded a broad work history that allows me to contribute creatively and technically to project teams.
