Design Statement

Making an idea come to life is something that has always sparked pure joy in me and has always driven me as a designer.

Thoughtfully created products not only make people’s lives better but have the power to do this by making them feel; this ability to orchestrate human emotion is what makes design so profound and powerful to me.

When creating, I don’t separate form and function, but believe they have the same purpose in developing an honest and valuable experience. I make sure to consider the entire product lifetime experience around the consumer, all the way down to the fine details of touch, feel, and finish that attract the senses.

I feel like this how design comes to life and has the greatest impact on not only their day to day experience, but their lifestyle at large.
