For unique multifaceted problems
Hiding complexity from the user
Design focused on sustainability and purpose
And curiosity to question everything
With control behind every detail
I grew up curious about absolutely everything, and had a favorite Xbox 360 game during my teenage years that sparked a particular interest - Halo 3. I started learning programming languages to create software, allowing me to reverse engineer the architecture of the game. After discovering I could create new realities within the game, I applied this to things in the physical world.
This curiosity initially brought me to Mechanical Engineering and I started making devices to control my house. Eventually I wanted have control over every detail of my inventions; this led me to Industrial Design which was an answer to managing how my inventions worked, looked, their usability, and how they were crafted.
"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works." - Steve Jobs
Combining this with my strong affinity toward nature and our planet from travel, an obvious goal emerged; I wanted to combine my knowledge and curiosity to help the world by creating purposeful new inventions and accelerating our transition to complete sustainability.
I work hard, take risks, fail often, and consequently learn often. Above all I value criticism; this is the most efficient path toward growth and understanding.
