Every design problem has a solution, and finding the fun and outer limits of that solutions is what I strive for in every project I take on. Both the process and practice of Industrial Design has always captivated me, and following a career in this field is something that I feel is benefited from the technical experience from my Bachelor of Design as well as my Architectural Diploma, and the knowledge to develop new ideas and solutions quickly and in with a positive attitude.
