I am a making focused designer with a love of mixing craft with problem solving. If I can’t say something better, I won’t say something different. To me, design is more than just an aesthetic exercise, although aesthetics are important; it is a whole understanding of the life-cycle of a product and the people who use it at each stage of the cycle. A product is important to those who make it, buy it, use it, repair it, and recycle it. Getting this degree is just the first chapter in my story, the rest of the story is yet to be written.
