Not everyone needs to be serious, but everyone should be curious. It’s my curiosity that drives me, and my curiosity that keeps me from specializing. I want to learn about and design for anybody and everybody, in all different situations. Then turn around and use those experiences and knowledge to have a wider base to pull from, improving my ability to adapt to new projects and new ideas. Always keeping an open mind, because everything is useful if one knows how to use it right.
I grew up and currently live in Southern California. I was always interested in tinkering, building, and taking things apart to find out how they work. Once I heard of product design I knew it was the direction I wanted to take. It combined my two favorite interests, the mechanical mindset of product design and cultural anthropology, the study of humans and how they interact.
