Other than being a gummy bear connoisseur... I consider myself a creative who uses the approach and tools of design to interact with and interpret the world. This means that I think holistically, possess an insatiable desire to learn and a yearning to make. I see the discipline of design as a critical avenue for making the world a better place for both humanity and the global ecological system.

My multidisciplinary creative practice primarily examines the implications and ecologies of digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence, mixed reality and interactive systems, and their respective affect on the way that we understand, communicate, interact and relate. Recently, I find myself envisioning new ideas of community and relations through the process of speculative and futures design and novel interaction designs.

My superpower is that I combine my design thinking with business thinking. Prior to my formal design education, I cultivated a business mindset over the course of a 8-year professional career in several customer-facing roles, with an undergraduate degree in Environment, Economics and Politics and as a member of multi-generational entrepreneurial family. It goes without saying that I look forward to discussing how I can assist you in considering new possibilities for the future.
