I am a culturally attuned trans-disciplinary designer, inventor, and entrepreneur based in Brooklyn. The crux of my work lands where design and technology meet and effect society. I am process driven, I think with my hands, and I focus on the utilization of new materials and manufacturing processes. To me, thinking and storytelling go hand in hand and are best realized through a culture of co-design and participatory practice in the tactical execution of products and services. I am driven to create a future in which these interactions will be realized responsibly both environmentally/societally as well as commercially.
I hold a BA in Science Technology and Society focused in Bio-Technology and a masters degree in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. As a participant in the Global Innovation Design program I studied in Tokyo at Keio Media Design and in London at the Royal College of Art / Imperial College of Engineering. My thesis examined biometric data privacy in the future of healthcare and wellness.
My specialities include: design-led research (rapid ethnography and universal design), creative operations and ideation, rapid prototyping, design provocation through designed fictions, design for social impact, conventional product design, branded content strategy, and entrepreneurship.
When not designing and experimenting, I can be found somewhere outside riding my bike, fishing, climbing, or skiing. For interest in Boulder Granola, co-founded in 2011, please see www.bouldergranola.com.
