About
I am a San Francisco based designer exploring the intersection of physical, digital, and services. I envision my designs to connect with users on an emotional level. I strive to achieve this by understanding the problems people have, their needs, desires, and discovering how design can address them.

Software : Solidworks, rhino, c4d, keyshot, adobe suite, principal, after effects,
