My passion to become a designer evolved from years of interest in origami. Turning a two dimensional material into a physical model that I could hold in my hands gave me a sense of accomplishment that was priceless. When I built my origami ironman helmet (my favorite super hero), I knew I was a product designer. I have the ability to take an idea and turn it into a tangible object.
Throughout my studies at Art Center, I have had internship opportunities where I developed Ul designs in collaboration with software engineers at JPL, I participated in toy design from concept development to prototyping at Hasbro, and designed with engineers at Embraer Executive Jets overseeing the future of luxury aircraft.
From these diverse experiences, my passion has grown tremendously. I see strength and value in my ability to collaborate efficiently with a wide-array of professionals, to problem-solve through deep observation and analysis, and to design innovatively.
