This site is meant to be an insightful look at many ways I Look, Listen, and Learn to cultivate my creative nature. Conceptualizing an idea from sketch to a product and refining the idea to become an even better product.

My passion for Art, Science, and Design originated in Oakland, CA where I was raised. I have always had a strong interest in Art and Engineering. I decided to combine my two passions and pursue a career in Product design. The process of solving complex problems with simple solutions, from initial ideation to fabrication and manufacturing.

In 2006, I began to study at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where I earned my Bachelors degree in Product Design.

My objective is to work in an environment that allows me to grow, where I can share my conceptual creativity, ideas and develop new skills. I enjoy utilizing my abilities to find, not just a solution, but many possible solutions to a problem in a functional and aesthetic manner.

I enjoy any opportunity to work where I can apply myself and grow. I may not become the best, but I can always work to become better.

Thank you
